Telecom Egypt Infected by Mining Virus
March 14, 2018
When downloading some programs Internet users in Turkey and Syria were redirected to the infected versions: malware exploited computing capacities of the PCs that followed the links for Monero mining.
It is to be noted that Telecom Egypt is a true telecommunication colossus and state organization. The company also controls significant share of Internet network capacity in Egypt so actual scale of the attack is hard to assess so far.
