BlackBerry promises to stop hidden mining on Intel computers with new tool
Telecommunications company BlackBerry and tech giant Intel have partnered to develop a tool to detect hidden mining software in the latter’s computers..
The tool, called the BlackBerry Optics Context Analysis Engine, uses Intel’s unique processor telemetry technology, machine learning and artificial intelligence techniques to prevent malware or cryptojackers from spreading..
BlackBerry says its solution “essentially stops cryptojacking” on Windows computers, using a limited amount of processor power..
“Given the high cost of mining cryptocurrencies and the decline in payments to ransomware, cryptojacking is becoming an attractive means of generating income among cybercriminals. The days when they could freely use the resources of unsuspecting users are behind us, “BlackBerry said.
According to a recent study by Verizon, about 10% of organizations were attacked by hidden miners during 2020.
Microsoft previously discovered hidden miner in basketball player Kobe Bryant’s image.
