For those who haven't heard about it yet, we will say that Bitcoin is a virtual currency, which has already reached the circulation rate of 11 million. Its market value is known to be around $1.4 billion at the moment and there is a growing number of reputable companies that accept it. While this currency is created not through a central monetary agency, but through the computers that perform CPU-intensive crypto calculations, scammers have started to use viruses for generating Bitcoins illegally. Basically, you can hardly notice when your computer gets infected with Bitcoin virus. According to experts, malware works only when user is not using his computer. However, you can pay attention to your PC's speed because it has been said that the usage of machine's CPU grows up significantly when Bitcoin virus infiltrates it.

HOW CAN I GET INFECTED WITH BITCOIN VIRUS?

According to security experts, Bitcoin virus is mostly spread via Skype network, but it has also been noticed on other social networks, so beware about that. Typically, this virus relies on a spam message, which claims something like „this my favourite picture of you” and includes a malicious file. Of course, virus seeks to convice its victims to download the file onto their computers. If you want to avoid Bitcoin virus, stay away from such messages. Once victim downloads the 'photo', he not only lets malicious pieces inside the machine, but allows the virus to connect PC with its command-and-control server. Once inside and active, Bitcoin virus turns the infected machine to the Bitcoin generator. However, it can also be designed to the virus, which steals banking details, records the keystrokes or downloads more malware on its target PC. That's why you must remove Bitcoin virus as soon as it gets inside the PC,
