'WebCobra': McAfee Spots Russian Malware Mining Monero and Zcash
Researchers at computer security firm McAfee Labs discovered a lethal new cryptojacking malware called ?WebCobra,? which steals victims? computing power to mine the cryptocurrencies Monero or Zcash secretly. The spike in cryptocurrency prices has inspired a new wave of cybercriminals, who use malware to cannibalize unsuspecting victims? computers to mine crypto. McAfee Labs says the Russian application WebCobra stealthily installs the Cryptonight miner or Claymore?s Zcash miner, depending on the configuration of victims? machine. ?On x86 systems, it injects Cryptonight miner code into a running process and launches a process monitor,? McAfee observed. ?On x64 systems, it checks the GPU configuration and downloads and executes Claymore?s Zcash miner from a remote server.?

Zcash Foundation Responds to Monero Developer's Tweet
There is never a shortage of controversy in the world of cryptocurrency. Although there are plenty of positive developments happening too, a recent announcement by the Zcash Foundation sparks some debates. In a tweet last Friday, Monero developer Riccardo Spagni calls out the Zcash Foundation for its funding strategy. One has to look at cryptocurrencies from many different angles. Most speculators and traders tend to forget all of these projects need to be funded one way or another. For Zcash, the creation of the Zcash Foundation should, in theory, take care of most problems in this department. So far that has not caused issues, although there is some criticism about the Foundation funding ?nonsensical projects?.

Riccardo Spagni, one of Monero?s main developer and maintainer, has recently shared his thoughts on Ethereum, and how it has failed to deliver what it has promised, according to him. Spagni, who goes on Twitter by the alias ?fluffypony?, got interested in a tweet posted by Joanna Rutkowska ? who is Chief Strategy and Security officer for blockchain project Golem.
