LemonDuck is malware related to the cryptocurrency mining process and crashes on Linux and Windows systems. The ways of spreading this malware are many and with a great variety, so you need to be careful.
LemonDuck malware can infect both a Windows PC and a Linux PC and has been identified as a risk by users who want to start cryptocurrency mining. A computer can be infected with an email, through a USB device, but also by malicious attacks.
Experts warn that LemonDuck malware exploits pathogens and shortcomings that have long existed in Windows and Linux systems and which seem to have not yet been fixed. According to Microsoft, this malware first hit China, but it seems that it has spread to other countries, such as the United States, Russia, France, Canada and several others.
Its main goal remains the business IT infrastructure, but this does not mean that ordinary home users are not at risk.
