"As Bitcoin’s value continues to rise, hackers have found increasingly sophisticated ways to illegally ‘mine’ the virtual currency. Now a new method has been uncovered which uses malware infected adverts on Yahoo to make computers Bitcoin slaves. Yahoo has confirmed that the breach took place last week and experts now believe as many as two million European users could have been affected." -- DailyMail.com

This is stupid and highly offensive. I hate how it's always assumed by the commercial ma$$ media that hackers have a role in crap like this, as if hijacking servers ever had anything to do with hacking.

Sensationalist idiots.
