Coindesk: A New Facebook Messenger Malware Is Targeting Crypto Users. “A malicious Google Chrome extension known for its effectiveness has been revamped to target cryptocurrency exchanges, cybersecurity company Trend Micro reported this week. Dubbed FacexWorm, Trend Micro said in a blog post that the malicious extension’s capabilities ‘were made over’ to steal user credentials for Google, MyMonero, and Coinhive; in sum, it promotes a scam that dupes users into sending ether to the attacker’s wallet and drains a computer’s processing power to power clandestine cryptocurrency mining.”
