Russian Scientists Arrested for Crypto Mining at Nuclear Lab

Reports suggest that several scientists working at a Russian nuclear weapons research facility have been arrested for mining cryptocurrencies at the site. Sources from Interfax and the BBC indicate that the unnamed scientists have been handed over to the Federal Security Service (F.S.B.) following the discovery. The scientists reportedly used a supercomputer at the facility to carry out the mining. The research center’s security department received an alert that the machine had been connected to the internet (for security reasons, these computers are normally kept offline.)
