Russian Scientists Arrested For Mining Bitcoin In Nuclear Weapons Lab

The Federal Nuclear Centre in Sarov, Russia is known as a top secret nuclear warhead facility where the Soviet Union's first bomb was designed. Now it's also known by scientists who worked there and tried to use one of Russia's most powerful supercomputers to mine Bitcoins.  Lesson learned - never mix crypto mining and work together

If I understood these scientists didn't know that computer was connected to the internet and when they try to use it the center's security department was alerted. Pretty stupid for scientists.

Not really if it wasn't suppose to be connected to prevent intrusions. I would say they were just unlucky.

Anyone who has worked for a major corporation knows--or should know--full well that IT departments monitor internet traffic, downloaded files, etc.
