""It uses the hacking tools recently disclosed by the NSA and which have since been fixed by Microsoft in a more stealthy manner and for a different purpose," he said.

Instead of completely disabling an infected computer by encrypting data and seeking a ransom payment, Adylkuzz uses the machines it infects to "mine" in a background task a virtual currency, Monero, and transfer the money created to the authors of the virus."

Thank you dear Pami ~ Always something isn't it! xxoo

Always something to worry about. Why can't people just be happy to be alive and not to do harm to others?Thanks Pami
