Unfortunately, it seems they make the headlines just as often when it comes to hackers stealing funds from crypto wallets. While many nations have begun debating the dangers surrounding cryptocurrencies, or at the very least what they perceive as the dangers, continued headlines stating how money is stolen can do little for the technology that many have gotten excited about.

This time an unknown hacker, or hacker group, managed to hijack the DNS (Domain Name Server) for BlackWallet.co, a web-based wallet application for the Stellar Lumen cryptocurrency (XLM). The hacker managed to steal over $400,000 from users' accounts. DNS hijacking is a type of malicious attack in which an individual re...

Thesterminator.com Redirect

Identical to bestadbid.com, deloton.com, rosetheet.com, and many others, thesterminator.com is a rogue website designed to redirect to other untrustworthy sites. Research shows, that users often visit thesterminator.com inadvertently - they are redirected by potentially unwanted programs (PUPs). In most cases, these programs infiltrate systems without users’ permission. In addition, PUPs deliver intrusive ads (coupons, banners, and so on), record sensitive information, and in some cases run unnecessary processes without consent. Potentially unwanted programs randomly open new browser tabs/windows and redirect to thesterminator.com. Immediately after visiting this site, users encounter several (typically 2 or 3) consecutive redirects to other dubious websites. These sites might contain malicious content and, therefore, redirects to and from thesterminator.com can result in high-risk computer infections. B...
