US Energy Department Floats Solution To Illicit Crypto Mining Malware

Fri, 26 Feb 2021, 04:31 am UTC

Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) are asking the private sector for help in commercializing a super-powerful cryptojacking detection algorithm that government officials believe can help datacenters overcome crypto-mining malware.

Disclosed but sparsely described in a Feb. 23 contract opportunity, the technology can sniff out illicit mining software, which harness hosts’ spare computing power to mine cryptocurrencies with extreme accuracy. This detection software combats the “increasing threat” of burrowed cryptojacking malware, an expensive specter DOE said menaces data centers globally.
