Tencent Yujian: In the first half of the year, the mining horses were added 60,000 samples per day. It is expected that the large-scale mining Trojans will continue to appear in the second half of the year.

The Tencent Yuzhi Threat Intelligence Center issued a statement today that with the soaring bitcoin, pushing up the price of the entire digital cryptocurrency, the mining horses closely related to the currency market began a new round of activity. The mining trojan gets a "currency" reward for the digital cryptocurrency system by completing a lot of calculations. From the beginning of the year to March, the mining trojans were the most active, with a daily production of 150,000 mining horses; the number of mining horses was reduced in April; and in June, the number of samples was about 60,000.
