Bkav has released a warning that more than 139,000 computers in Viet Nam have been infected with new cryptocurrency mining virus named W32.AdCoinMiner. The virus spreads through online advertising service and through software vulnerabilities in order to take control of victim's computer to mine cryptocurrency.

According to statistics from Bkav's virus surveillance system, more than 35,000 smartphones in Vietnam were infected with GhostTeam virus that stole Facebook passwords (by January 25, 2018). This malware leveraged a variety of Vietnamese popular apps on Google Play to spread. Bkav advises users conduct a virus scan and immediately change their Facebook account passwords if they detect that their smartphone was infected.

In 2017, the damage caused by computer viruses to Vietnamese users has reached VND 12,300 billion, equivalent to USD 540 million, far from VND 10,400 billion of the last year. This is the result of the cyber security assessment conducted by Bkav Corporation in December 2017. The damage in Viet Nam has hit a record in recent years.

November 27, 2017, Bkav's security experts (from Vietnam) have successfully crafted a new mask, which beats Face ID in the way that twins unlock iPhone X. With this new research, Bkav raises the severity level to all users, instead of just some special individuals in Bkav's previous recommendations.

IoT devices such as Wi-Fi Router, IP Camera and so on used by Vietnamese families being targeted by Mirai malware, 15 million computers being infected by virus in the last 3 months are the highlights of cyber security in 3rd quarter of 2017.
