Cyber security company Varonis has discovered a new miner virus that stealthily extends Monero cryptocurrency (XMR) on users' devices.

The company’s report said that a feature of the miner called Norman is that it is difficult to detect in the system. So, when you open the task manager on a Windows device, the program ends the mining process. Accordingly, after closing the task manager, the miner restarts. Thus, the user does not even realize that his computer is infected.
