Mining. Now Available on Billboards

English mobile Internet consultant Terence Eden reported on his official Twitter page that in London a billboard was hacked. The hackers installed a program on the device and started mining cryptocurrency using a computer that ran a billboard.

Terence Eden photographed a huge advertising screen, which took almost the whole wall of the London shop. It is noteworthy that the Windows OS was installed on the computer that controlled the advertisement.

On the photo you can see the desktop of the computer with a lot of icons. One of the open programs was the NiceHash program – a program-miner for old computers. It is also known that the purse where the cryptocurrency came was started with the symbols 3Jgi6. In his message Terence Eden suggests that thanks to this information his “smarter” subscribers will be able to find out to whom it belongs. In addition, it is not known whether the software for the mining was installed by the store employees themselves or someone else.
