LoudMiner, also known as Bird Miner, is a persistent malware that has been distributed for macOS and Windows operating systems since August 2018. Unlike typical malware that aims to exploit and damage computer systems, LoudMiner focuses on mining cryptocurrencies, such as bitcoin, using infected machines. This unique approach allows criminals to utilize the processing power of compromised computers to generate digital currencies without the owner's knowledge or consent. The infection process begins with the installation of LoudMiner itself, followed by the installation of an actual Virtual Studio Technology (VST) software. This deceptive tactic helps to conceal the presence of the malicious program, making it harder to detect and remove. Once installed, LoudMiner employs various techniques to hide itself and ensure persistence even after system reboots, making it challenging for users to eliminate the malware effectively. LoudMiner represents a growing trend in cybercriminal activities where attackers exploit unsuspecting users' devices for illicit cryptocurrency mining. This underscores the importance of maintaining robust security measures, such as regularly updating operating systems and applications, being cautious with downloads and emails, and using reputable antivirus software to protect against malware threats.
