Since the beginning of 2020, “Glupteba,” a malware that uses Bitcoin’s blockchain to control an army of bots, has been spreading at an accelerated pace. 

The malware was first discovered in 2011 but researchers noted in late 2019 that it had started using the Bitcoin blockchain to help coordinate its botnet. Now, further research suggests the botnet may be sold to any buyer who wants to make use of it.
