Google and Apple have recently implemented policies to help prevent cryptocurrency mining malware from running on the devices of unsuspecting users. Both have placed bans on any app or extension\u2014Apple for all devices and Google for Chrome extensions\u2014related to mining, even if the app is playing by the rules. This hasn\u2019t stopped the malware developers from creating innovative ways to continue their operations, as it would appear that televisions are now capable of cryptocurrency mining. According to a reports, Amazon Fire has become infested with a malware app called ADB.Miner. The app takes over the devices almost completely, reducing the processing speed to virtually zero. An infected device will also display the familiar green Android robot affectionately called by some Bugdroid. The app is installed as \u201ccom.google.time.timer\u201d and can only be found through unofficial channels. It cannot be installed unless Fire TV\u2019s developer options are enabled. A complete description of the process can be found on the xda-developers website. Fortunately, removing the malware isn\u2019t complicated. There are several methods available, from using an application on Amazon app store called Total Commander, to performing a complete factory reset of the device. While using Total Commander is the easiest and won\u2019t result in the loss of data, there are no guarantees that all traces of the malware will be removed.\u00a0 A factory reset is the most secure method, but will cause all data to be erased from the device. To ensure that Fire TV devices cannot be infected, users should set \u201cADB debugging\u201d and \u201cApps from Unknown Sources\u201d to off in the system menu. Android devices ship with this setting disabled by default, so it will only be on if someone has changed them. It\u2019s also important to mention that users should always only install from verified sources and scan apps before installation. It\u2019s difficult to avoid mining malware infections, but not impossible. However, as the Internet of Things continues to expand and become a part of everyday life, it\u2019s possible that we could see the spread of malware without realizing it. Even some Internet service providers have been busted for injecting browser-based mining applications and spyware on their customers\u2019 devices. It\u2019s now more important than ever to be as vigilant as possible about what we install on our devices.
