Monero [XMR] It remains the best choice for Crypto Mining malware, the trend will continue in 2019
It has been unveiled that the use of the Ilero token, XMR, will only see new heights going forward. According to Cyber Threatscape, hackers are more likely to conduct illegal activities such as the implantation of an encryption malware by the use of XMR due to the increased privacy and anonymity in transactions. This is not the first of the results, given that Monero XMR was previously underestimated for the same reasons.
Oracle Times took its platform to break down the results found in the study, and as many as 71% of Chief Security Officers confirmed that cryptojacking is increasing, calling it a mystery, or as they said, "bit of a black box ". The main concern for cryptojacking is the fact that these activities are not easy to track down. In particular, the way in which the attack will be conducted and when it occurs will always remain a threat.
According to a report published by Skybox Security, a computer security company, it was revealed that only in mid-2018, 32 percent of crimes were encryption.
If this is the case only for 2018, what is the faith of 2019? Based on the Cyber Threatscape report, the number of attacks will continue to grow, while using such attacks to extract even more XMR tokens. Although this is a mere projection, it is not surprising because the notion of traceability seems to be nowhere to be seen.
In other words, the combination of privacy, anonymity and the lack of a detailed distributed ledger is what will increase the supply Monero XMR as more and more computers are attacked.
