New Mirai Botnet Variant ‘V3G4’ Exploiting 13 Flaws to Target Linux and IoT Devices

Posted by in category: cybercrime/malcode

A new variant of the notorious Mirai botnet has been found leveraging several security vulnerabilities to propagate itself to Linux and IoT devices.

Observed during the second half of 2022, the new version has been dubbed V3G4 by Palo Alto Networks Unit 42, which identified three different campaigns likely conducted by the same threat actor.

“Once the vulnerable devices are compromised, they will be fully controlled by attackers and become a part of the botnet,” Unit 42 researchers said. “The threat actor has the capability to utilize those devices to conduct further attacks, such as distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks.”

Cybersecurity defenders are expanding their AI toolbox

Posted by in categories: cybercrime/malcode, robotics/AI

Scientists have taken a key step toward harnessing a form of artificial intelligence known as deep reinforcement learning, or DRL, to protect computer networks.

When faced with sophisticated cyberattacks in a rigorous simulation setting, was effective at stopping adversaries from reaching their goals up to 95 percent of the time. The outcome offers promise for a role for autonomous AI in proactive cyber defense.

Scientists from the Department of Energy’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory documented their findings in a research paper and presented their work Feb. 14 at a workshop on AI for Cybersecurity during the annual meeting of the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence in Washington, D.C.

Massive HTTP DDoS Attack Hits Record High of 71 Million Requests/Second

Posted by in category: cybercrime/malcode

Web infrastructure company Cloudflare on Monday disclosed that it thwarted a record-breaking distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack that peaked at over 71 million requests per second (RPS).

“The majority of attacks peaked in the ballpark of 50–70 million requests per second (RPS) with the largest exceeding 71 million,” the company said, calling it a “hyper-volumetric” DDoS attack.

It’s also the largest HTTP DDoS attack reported to date, more than 35% higher than the previous 46 million RPS DDoS attack that Google Cloud mitigated in June 2022.

Nanotechnology: Hacking Humans, Its Potential, and Real Risks

Posted by in categories: bioengineering, biotech/medical, cybercrime/malcode, nanotechnology

Science fiction has become a reality with recent developments toward biohacking through nanotechnology. Soon, science and industries may soon realize the potential of human hacking… but at what risk versus reward? Medical nanotechnology is one of these such topics. Many experts believe nanotechnology will pave the way for a bright, new future in improving our wellbeing. Yet, at the core of this biohacking are machines and as we’ve seen with other technologies — there are very real risks of malicious intent. In this video, we share some of the applications being developed combining nanotechnology and medicine. We also look at the potential risks found in the practice and how we may mitigate issues before they’re problematic. We also share how companies can reduce security flaws and curb public perception so the nanotechnology industry can flourish without major setbacks. Want to learn more about this budding area of science and medicine?

CrowdStrike exec explains why the cloud is a ‘net-positive’ for cybersecurity

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, cybercrime/malcode

Check out all the on-demand sessions from the Intelligent Security Summit here.

In recent years, cloud computing has proven itself as one of the fundamental technologies empowering modern enterprises with on-demand connectivity. Without it, the widespread move toward hybrid work wouldn’t have been possible during the COVID–19 pandemic. Yet what about cybersecurity in this new cloud-centric world?

The convenience of instant connectivity has created new vulnerabilities for security teams to confront, and many organizations are still playing catchup, with 81% of organizations experiencing cloud-related security incidents in the past year.

Hackers are mass infecting servers worldwide

Posted by in category: cybercrime/malcode

An explosion of cyberattacks is infecting servers around the world with crippling ransomware by exploiting a vulnerability that was patched two years ago, it was widely reported on Monday.

The hacks exploit a flaw in ESXi, a hypervisor VMware sells to cloud hosts and other large-scale enterprises to consolidate their hardware resources. ESXi is what’s known as a bare-metal, or Type 1, hypervisor, meaning it’s essentially its own operating system that runs directly on server hardware. By contrast, servers running the more familiar Type 2 class of hypervisors, such as Oracle’s VirtualBox, run as apps on top of a host operating system. The Type 2 hypervisors then run virtual machines that host their own guest OSes, such as Windows, Linux, or, less commonly, macOS.
