Crypto Mining Rigs Hidden in Polish Court Building to Steal Electricity

A number of powerful computing devices were found secreted within the Supreme Administrative Court in Warsaw, Poland. They weren’t installed to collect court data, or any similar espionage, reports Poland’s TVN24. Instead, investigators believe they were simply hidden within the fabric of the building to mine cryptocurrency while enjoying ‘free’ electricity.

According to the source report, the discovery of the high-power equipment happened around August, September 2023. A letter sent to TVN24 by one of the court judges confirmed the purpose of the unofficial computing equipment as cryptocurrency mining.
