There is a perception that Monero is a coin of criminals who are in pursuit of a quick profit, engaged in mining through the computers of their victims. Specialist cyber security company Palo Alto Networks Josh Grunzweig studied the situation with Monero and confirmed that a significant portion of these coins is of the order of 5% — was really naminanu with malware.

Grunzweig, studied more than 400 000 samples of hacker programs and built the list of purses for which they mainily, and then went through all the mining pools to set the total amount. Grunzweig recognizes that it may be even higher because it did not analyze the Monero blockchain. The fact that the man has no way of knowing the balance of your wallet’s address with the block Explorer blockchain like bitcoin or other non-anonymous cryptocurrency.

There are other reasons to suspect a higher number. Grunzweig, explains:

I gave this a rating without taking into account the network of miners Monero such as Coinhive, and miners do not fall into my field of vision. Therefore, we can assume that the real percentage of outstanding coins Monero, kamineni attackers, is much higher.

Recall that Monero is associated with criminal activity do not stay aside and North Korea: the hackers from that country managed to hack the servers in Seoul and to 70 XMR that have brought sanctions on North Korea.

While on the “rich” wallet of all known received 88 448,53 XMR. Considering that this wallet never sold stored in the coins, their value now is $11 102 942,71.
