Although recent studies have been showing a slowdown in cryptojacking activities, especially the ones related to mining privacy coins, Intel remains on the hunt to crackdown on such activities. The tech giant has partnered with Microsoft to deploy a campaign that strengthens cryptojacking detection with new technologies.

Tool Could Trigger Multiple Detectors to Halt Any Cryptojacking Threat

According to the announcement, Microsoft Defender for Endpoint integrated a threat detection tool – known as Intel Threat Detection Technology (Intel TDT) – designed by Intel to launch an endpoint detection of cryptojacking threats before it hits a system.

The technology can activate central processing unit (CPU) based cryptomining machine learning detection without compromising users’ computers whatsoever, said the companies in a joint announcement.

Frank Dickson, program vice president of Security and Trust at International Data Corporation (IDC), gave his thoughts on the detection tool:

Overall, what the tool makes is to send a high-fidelity signal that triggers multiple detectors across the corporate fleet without reducing systems’ resources.

Cryptojacking Attacks Have Been Losing Momentum

Cryptojacking is a malicious cyberattack where threat actors install crypto-mining apps into computers belonging to individuals or businesses, aiming to mine cryptos illicitly by taking resources from the systems.

Such actions significantly reduce the performance of the affected computers, and some malware and some cryptojacking attacks have enough capabilities to extend their arms onto a whole network of computers.

Still, Bitcoin.com News reported early in April that cryptojacking attacks related to mine monero (XMR) have been decreasing for the first time since 2018.

Threat actors in cryptojacking attacks mainly mine the privacy cryptocurrency, which has been well-document in other intelligence firms’ research.
