A large transaction totaling nearly 12,000 BTC was moved from a wallet associated with the PlusToken Ponzi scheme into what appears to be cold wallet addresses. The coins are being split into smaller amounts, around 100-400 BTC per transaction, with the total amount valued at around $120 million. The PlusToken Ponzi scheme was one of the largest crypto scams in history, with past movements suspected to be a cause of sharp corrections in the prices of Bitcoin, Ether, and many other altcoins.
Outlaw, a group specialized hijacking computers to mine Monero (XMR), is now back and is trying to infiltrate businesses in the Europe and U.S. According to a report by Trend Micro, the group has been inactive and just began its activity in December and is targeting Linux-based enterprise systems using both pre-existing and new techniques to monitor programs that could detect its malware. The new malware is also able to hunt down and kill existing mining bots to eliminate competition and improve mining profits.
The report did not include details about the names of any businesses affected by Outlaw's malware. Companies most at risk are in the financial and auto industries that haven't updated their internet security systems.
