Crypto Malware

Crypto malware generally installs a malicious payload into a victim’s computer that diverts CPU processing time to cryptocurrency mining. This doesn’t necessarily do any harm to the computer or data, but can dramatically slow down performance and can use excessive energy. Unlike ransomware, crypto malware can go about doing its work completely undetected.
