Hackers Targeting WebLogic Servers and Docker APIs for Mining Cryptocurrencies
Malicious actors such as Kinsing are taking advantage of both recently disclosed and older security flaws in Oracle WebLogic Server to deliver cryptocurrency-mining malware.
Cybersecurity company Trend Micro said it found the financially-motivated group leveraging the vulnerability to drop Python scripts with capabilities to disable operating system (OS) security features such as Security-Enhanced Linux (SELinux), and others.
The operators behind the Kinsing malware have a history of scanning for vulnerable servers to co-opt them into a botnet, including that of Redis, SaltStack, Log4Shell, Spring4Shell, and the Atlassian Confluence flaw (CVE-2022-26134).
