Bitcoin is a payment system on the Internet and also works like a way to exchange foreign currency, which recently emerged as an open-source software. It is a cryptography of money transactions which includes creating, transferring and supporting all its control online. In this process the participant checks and saves payments through one transaction carried through the software’s on computers and mobiles. A similar process is also carried on the exchange of services, products and other currencies.
With the consistency of Bitcoins, a new issue arose about its security. Users of Mac who needs Bitcoins for their transactions can lose their money if they are not careful while installing the app , they can install accidentally a trojan. “OSX/CT” application is a Trojan virus similar to a Bitcoin application “StealthBit”. This seatbelt is operated by Mac users for their transactions. One can get confused while downloading the Trojan which looks exactly like Bitcoin.
This StealthBit application was first published on “GitHub”. A developer who has created this Trojan have used the source code from the StealthBit application which was uploaded to the Github. Once you install this model of StealthBit virus, it automatically installs some add-ons of the browser into your browser. These destructive add-ons on browser have then taken login information from you about Bitcoins including Blockchain.com, MtGox and BTC-e. When your login information received by extensions, it sends your login information to the hacker and you will lose your wallet without getting noticed.
A case about the stealing of Bitcoins also came up, when a person installed this app from Github and he lost his 20 Bitcoins (in that time, it should worth $ 13,480). So , if you use a Mac, please pay much attention! If you are using the Bitcoins app for your transactions , pay attention to your browser extensions and also “Pop-up Blocker” or even anything at all from it. After that. Clear all of them instantly.
Everything has pros and cons, same applies to Bitcoins, on one side web development have created a great platform for fully digital transactions and on the other side it has also given rise to cybercrime by creating malware of it. Web development and programming used in the best way can benefit lot not only in terms of programming, but also in the way you are thinking and creating a business for goodwill of others.
