Because of the increasing value of cryptocurrency, it comes as no surprise that hackers have geared up to get more of it. They use a process called cryptojacking, which can considerably slow your PC down. If you notice your computer is performing in a subpar manner, hackers may already be using your hardware to make easy money.
Over time, your computer will work slower as software requirements become more demanding. But if you have a relatively new computer, and are experiencing performance problems after clicking a link or visiting a website, you might be the victim of a new cyberattack scheme known as cryptojacking.
