Malicious crypto miners are becoming a mainstay of cyber criminality and will continue to grow more dominant. In addition, the latest crypto-miner attacks demonstrate that bad actors are constantly adjusting their tactics to find new ways to take advantage of their victims, warns WatchGuard Technologies.

The company says the Asia-Pacific was the target of a majority of crypto-mining malware deployed in the first quarter, with most attacks Windows-based and 98% aimed at India and Singapore.

It adds that almost half of all malware eludes basic antivirus technology.
