Government websites mined cryptocurrency after being hijacked by hackers 

“A host of government websites were found to be running a power-pinching program that uses visitors’ computers to mine cryptocurrency, a process known as “cryptojacking”” writes Margi Murphy for telegraph.co.uk. The websites were infected with malware called Coinhive, which works by hiding in a website’s code, while stealing the processing power of its visitors’ devices to mine cryptocurrency.Bitcoin is a digital currency that uses decentralised technology for secure payments and storing money that doesn’t require banks or people’s names.The digital coins are stored in an anonymous digital wallet, to be withdrawn at a later date.
