BlackBerry website used to mine cryptocurrencies

01/08/2018

A vulnerability in the Blackberry website allowed a malicious user to use the CoinHive script to mine Monero cryptocurrencies, taking advantage of the resources of the portal's visitors without their consent.

Once the fraud was discovered, the user of the CoinHive platform was blocked for violating the terms of service. Blackberry, on the other hand, deleted the code from its website, informed that it is safe again.
