New malware “RedXOR” targeting Linux systems per Threatpost

Apparently Chinese APT groups aren’t busy enough. This new backdoor malware comes courtesy of the Winnti group, in targeted attacks on legacy Linux systems. Its capabilities include data exfil and tunneling traffic elsewhere plus more.

Go Shodan Yourself!: And this. I spent last night searching Shodan, like many others in security, checking for both MS Exchange and f5 exposure. It is staggering how many organizations of all sizes and capabilities show up with things attackers would appreciate . Like TLS v1, or expired certificates. You can say you have mitigations in place, that your production gear isn’t exposed- but really, how are checking to see what others are finding about you? Stay safe!
