If you tought air-gapped devices are safe, read this: https://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2018/04/new-hacks-siphon-private-cryptocurrency-keys-from-airgapped-wallets/

Sounds to me like Person of interest, but still feasible in some ideal conditions.

I think since the OP posted this, things has gotten a lot more complicated. The security of cryptocurrencies has improved, however the malwares and viruses has likely also improved. However, I believe the best thing to do is to be always prudent to protect yourself. Having some sort of security measure to protect your coins is essential, whether it be bitcoins or whatever altcoins. My security measure of choice is having a hardware wallet, it is a robust security device but still convenient to use.

he target of this virus is to spam and steal BitCoin. The most dangerous, is the theft of BitCoin. BitCoin price is very expensive and has skyrocketed to Rp 25 million more. Imagine you lost that precious BitCoin.

One cannot predict all the ways you will get infected. One effective way is to have a separate device for your cryptocurrency, keep it offline with a thumb drive.
Be skeptical before accessing anything online and it will take you a long way.

Thank you for sharing the warning. Indeed, the more powerful the security software, the more dangerous the malicious software. It's like when a drug is found to fight the virus, it creates a new strain and strong resistance. Never be subjective with software with unknown functionalities and backgrounds. It can clean everything in your computer. The most confidential information is related to personal account, bank account.

In Crypto, the security of your coins is the real deal
Indeed so. This is a problem that network security managers always warn us. Let's think about it, if the e-wallet account and password contains Bitcoin or Ethereum that we accumulate in the hands of bad people. All the hard work we do will be zero. Do everything possible to protect each and every one of us.

Would running each wallet/miner in a different virtual machine with virtualbox prevent the effects of this kind of malware?
