Trojan virus changing btc address on clipboard : A trojan virus programmed to change copied btc addresses has been detected.
How does the virus work ?
The virus replaces the copied btc address with the pre-defined one when the sender tries to make btc payments.
The copied btc address changes into the scammer’s btc address when the sender pastes the address hence the payment is sent to the scammer.
The sneaky virus can not be detected by popular virus softwares. Therefore crypto users are adviced to double check the btc address before sending the payment.
