Computer security is an important factor when it comes to using Bitcoin and other digital currencies. But what if its not just our personal computers we have to worry about? Not to mention the fact hackers have successfully been able to install malware on computers in order to let other people “mine” Bitcoin or other currencies for them.
One of those cases originated in the Netherlands, where Computerworld launched an investigation into the possibility of showroom model computers containing malware. An anonymous hacker put Computerworld on this trail after infecting multiple machines.
