Re: Article #4 --- Due by February 4th

Linux servers are the target of a new crypto-mining campaign in which a malware implants a backdoor Trojan by exploiting known vulnerabilities in six different Linux distributions.  The malware has been seen targeting servers mainly in Latin America and Asia, including machines hosted by Amazon Web Services and Mac devices. There is currently no way for anti-malware software to detect and stop these attacks.
