You're gonna mine Bitcoin without knowing it

It sounded like a joke but this time a good one.

Using the old concept of distributed workload capacity some "Hackers" are using your available computing power to mine Bitcoin. It's the new version of space listening but without your permission. 
 
At this stage beyond the legality of the operation the hacker is technically stealing power, electricity and bandwidth. 

There is a real risk beyond this operation with a realization of this mechanism to target something else. We all remember the massive ddos attack performed with the power of smart devices such as home camera. 

Before laughing about this "fun" attack... Let's think encore.
