The rest of the changes mainly apply to transaction execution. The release is available for MacOS, Windows, Linux and Android operation systems.
Beware of scammers
A list of binary SHA-256 hashes designed to verify the authenticity of software downloads is attached to the release. Also, the list of hashes can be verified by the appropriate GPG-key in the source code.
As reported by U.Today, remote mining of Monero (XMR) has been targeted by hackers with new techniques. The ESET cybersecurity provider recently unveiled that the Statinko hackers secretly utilized half a million victims' computers for illegal mining.
