The Golang malware has been active since last month, exploiting poor security practices to target both Linux and Windows-based servers. Implementing 2FA with robust passwords and keeping all running software updated can help protect against Golang and other dangerous attacks.

 

Multi-platform malware is a bit more dangerous than others since it could infect various operating systems at the same time. An example of one such in the latest is of a Golang based malware.

The malware has been actively involved in installing the XMRig miner on both Windows and Linux servers since the start of December 2020 in order to mine cryptocurrencies.

These servers are targeted based on the fact that they are public-facing in the form of MySQL databases or Tomcat admin panels for example combined with poor security practices.
