A first of its kind malware dubbed Denonia has been targeting Amazon Web Services (AWS) Lambda, an event-driven, serverless computing platform.
Check Point Research has revealed that Trickbot is once again the most popular malware, according to a Global Threat Index report for September 2021. A remote access trojan, njRAT, was also added to the top 10 report for first time ever.
Hackers have attacked over 1,400 Apache Solr servers late last month to install a cryptocurrency miner. Researchers say the attack resembles a similar campaign discovered back in January that targeted systems running unpatched Oracle WebLogic software. In that attack, hackers installed a mining rig used to mine Monero cryptocurrency.
Trend Micro security researchers have spotted an Oracle vulnerability that is being abused to deliver dual Monero miner malware. The Oracle WebLogic WLS-WSAT vulnerability (CVE-2017-10271) allows remote code execution and was patched by Oracle back in October.
