Coinhive: the Monero mining invisible system appears on some Android apps

Coinhive appeared on Android.

Just a few days ago, the known “Monero” mining invisible system has been identified in some applications on Google Play. So, Android users are at risk and, in the future, they will have to pay more attention to over-consumption of their device’s resources.

In fact, since the system’s purpose is mining of “Monero”, it needs to utilize the hardware resources of the device (eg CPUs and GPUs). The immediate consequence is that it negatively affects battery consumption.
