DreamBus botnet targets enterprise apps running on Linux servers
The recently discovered DreamBus botnet uses exploits and brute-force attacks to target PostgreSQL, Redis, SaltStack, Hadoop, Spark, and others enterprise-level apps that run on Linux systems. "The idea is to give the DreamBus gang a foothold on a Linux server where they could later download and install an open-source app that mines the Monero (XMR) cryptocurrency to generate profits for the attackers."
Chances are that if you deploy a Linux server online these days and you leave even the tiniest weakness exposed, a cybercrime group will ensnare it as part of its botnet.
