BlackBerry Report Examines Decade-Long Compromise of Linux Servers by Chinese APTs : linux
Yeah, I’ve obtained the repport from Blackberry, they usually analyze a toolkit, and mainly say “Since nobody is talking about it, that must mean nobody has detected it, thus it must have existed for a long time on a lot of system”.
I imply, positive, or , it simply wasn’t on quite a bit of system?
And I am unable to discover any “hack” per say, on how they get the toolkit on the system, all I discovered was this:
“Akamai observed that the botnet grew in size after using brute force attacks to obtain the password for the target Linux server. The attackers then simply logged in to the server to drop the botnet malware (Akamai, 2015)”
Otherwise it is fairly round in it is “Well, people are running malware, so obviously they got infected”.
Ok, positive, however HOW are they being contaminated? People are nonetheless working unrecognized apps? They nonetheless open attachments?
I imply, the one precise motion in opposition to a Linux system talked about is “brute force attack”.
I positive hope your system aren’t utilizing dumb passwords.
