VictoryGate


VictoryGate was the name of a cryptomining botnet, which was disrupted by ESET researchers in April 2020. The used malware itself was also referred to as VictoryGate. It was spotted in May 2019 and targeted mainly Latin American users, specifically, Peru (Criptonizando states 90% of the botnet publication residing there). Both public and private sectors were targeted.
This cryptojacking malware was specialized in Monero (XRM) cryptocurrency.
