Fake Ad Blocker Delivers Hybrid Cryptominer/Ransomware Infection

At its previous peak in February, the Monero Miner cryptocurrency ransominer was targeting more than 2,500 users a day, disguised as an antivirus installer. Now, the tricky hybrid malware is on the rise again, this time impersonating an ad blocker and OpenDNS service.

In total, it has infected more than 20,000 users in less than two months, researchers at Kaspersky warned, in a report on Wednesday.
