The Crypto Miners Fight For CPU Cycles, (Sun, Mar 4th)

I found an interesting piece of Powershell code yesterday. The purpose is to download and execute a crypto miner but the code also implements a detection mechanism to find other miners, security tools or greedy processes (in terms of CPU cycles). Indeed, crypto miners make intensive use of your CPUs and more CPU resources they can (ab)use, more money will be generated. When a computer is infected, it looks legit to search for already running miners and simply kill them: The fight for CPU cycles started!
