Make-A-Wish Foundation Hacked, Infected With Malware By Crypto Miners

The Infinite Brief
Researchers from the security firm Trustwave reported that a CoinImp crypto mining script was uploaded to the Make-A-Wish Foundation website with the script utilising the computing power of site visitors in order to mine crypto for the cybercriminals.

Make A Wish is built on Drupal, which earlier this year announced that they had found a security vulnerability within their software which enables hackers with the ability to inject malicious code into certain sites which had not upgraded to include a new security patch.

Cryptojacking, which is the use of malicious code in order to force computer users to mine digital currencies without their knowledge has become quite the pandemic for users on the web in the last few years.
