WARNING: WiFi Hotspot ‘FREE_WIFI_abc12345’ will get you hacked

Beware of WiFi hotspots which contain ‘FREE_WIFI_abc12345’ in their name.

The reason for this warning is the fact that the mentioned SSID name is setup by the Photominer malware. The Photominer Trojan tries to mine Monero mines which is another cryptocurrency.

But that is not the only thing which the Photominer malware does – it also setups an SSID with the name ‘FREE_WIFI_abc12345’.
