[Information Security Daily]On March 22, the Linux server without management was invaded by the malware ShellBot and used for DDoS attacks

Malware attacks targeting Linux servers have emerged recently. The newly emerging ShellBot botnet virus is also one of these threats. However, it is worth noting that hackers invaded these servers because of their highly privileged systems Management accounts generally use weak passwords, and using dictionary attacks can guess passwords and seize system dominance. Although malware attacks targeting Linux operating systems have increased, malware attacking Windows computers should not be taken lightly either. For example, the malware named DotRunpeX not only uses Process Hollowing, but also uses the virtualization component KoiVM to obfuscate the code. Previously, only a malicious program loader called MalVirt used this type of obfuscation.
