Monero is a privacy coin that is often used by cybercriminals because it is much more difficult to trace than other cryptocurrencies like bitcoin. Monero-focused crypto-mining attacks are relatively common: The Pirate Bay, a website where users can download movies, music, software and games, announced in 2018 it would be “cryptojacking” visitors’ processing power to mine for monero, and in 2020, a botnet called “Vollgar” was found to be targeting Microsoft’s SQL servers to mine for monero, as well.
