hAnt

Ransomware infects bitcoin miners, makes them climb to top of very tall tree, wait patiently.

They can either pay a $36,000 ransom to remove the ransomware from the mining rig, or they can download a malicious firmware update that they have to apply to other mining rigs to further spread the ransomware.

I am hAnt! I continue to attack your Antminer. As long as you spread the infected machine, my server verifies that there are 10 new IPs and the number of antminers reaches 1,000. I will stop attacking you! Otherwise I will turn off your antminer's fan and overheat protection, which will cause you to burn your machine or will burn the house.

Click the 'Diwnload firmware patch' button to download the firmware patch with your specific ID. Just update it to your normal Antminer to get infected.

You can bring the machine that updated the patch to another computer room to complete the infection, or induce others to use the firmware patch in the network group.

Or support 10 BTCs, I will stop attacking.
