Crypto mining malware will be detected on virtual machines by Google cloud
The Security Command Centre Team of Google cloud has created a threat detecting service through which poorly configured devices can shield themselves from the attacks of illegal crypto miners (who extensively make use of the process known as cryptojacking). Through a blog post, Google cloud had announced that they had added Virtual Machine Threat Detection (VMTD) in the Security Command Centre (SCC) area of their cloud platform. VMTD can successfully detect any kind of threats and malware that are used to mine cryptocurrencies.
Cryptojacking is the new nuisance in this growing crypto industry. In 2019 browser or website based cryptojacking was at its peak, and now cloud-based cryptojacking is widely spreading in the same industry. As a solution to this problem, Google Cloud came up with VMTD, which not only scans the threats and malware but also destroys them at the same time.
