Hackers are now using the meme coin Dogecoin to infiltrate computers using a botnet. They are using the Dogecoin wallet to change their location so they can stay untraceable as they use their malware bots to mine for crypto. The attackers run their Monero mining bots mainly on Linux operating systems and perform a Dogecoin transaction to change their location address.

are they actually injecting the viruses through memes ? i mean, people mostly save their memes on phones instead of computers, so not a lot of users that got infected

This is not good for dogecoin which is currently fighting g to stay in the market .
These illegal activities coming from cryptocurrency is a call for concern on the future of cryptocurrency

The current price of dogecoin is so small that one may not consider investing on it . surprise to see scamming activities associated with it.
When it comes to hacking , hackers won't hesitate to use any available medium for them .
Dogecoin has fallen indeed , but people can easily be scammed through it .

Hackers will surely find a way to to do their business, may be they have discovered a super annonymity in dogecoin than other coins hence they choose to use it.

This isn't the first time hackers use Dogecoin as a cover for their hacking operation. Still I have a few questions tho - how they infect people's pc?

Thats strange , but i think it came along with sending dogecoin . Any pc that receives or send dogecoin to the affected address ,will be affected by the program.

If that's true then the wallet owner should simply shut down the wallet to prevent that. I feel like there's something missing in the OP that confuse me.

I think instead of shutting down the wallet , he should devise a means to find out the bug and remove it , less he might end up losing more people. Dogecoin hasn't been doing that well to experience this kinda of setback .

Well, to find out the bug, programmers usually shutdown the service first and then hunt down the bug. If they keep the service running while bug hunting that may interfere with wallet users' activity and causing many errors.

This is then the major challenge here .
However they can tell the users that their wallet is up for maintenance, and use a shirt time to rectify the issue .

Many people lose their job in this pandemic, that's why some of them resort to hacking.

There is a threat pf hacking no matter what kind of crypto you use. They attack randomly most of the time.

I never thought dogecoin would be used for illegal activities like these. I am sure it's due to this worse pandemic, people are getting crazy day by day.

Oh my, the downsides of technology and just about every good thing is that pathologically negative people will find a way to hardwire it for the wrong things and extreme abuse. Now, you stand at risk every moment you get online.
