Subject description: cryptojacking and how to defend against it
 

What is Cryptojacking and Why Is It a Cybersecurity Risk?

One way that cryptojacking attacks occur is via JavaScript code that runs in a browser. In that type of attack, the user visits a page, watches a video or clicks a link, where the embedded JavaScript cryptocurrency code is deployed.
