In a report geared toward assessing threats to Cloud customers, Google’s Cybersecurity Action Team stated that some attackers are exploiting “poorly configured” accounts to mine cryptocurrency.

On Wednesday, the Google (NASDAQ:) group stated out of fifty analyzed incidents that compromised the Google Cloud (*30*), 86% have been associated to crypto mining.
