Lucifer cryptomining DDoS malware now targets Linux systems
Lucifer - a hybrid DDoS cryptomining botnet notorious for hijacking vulnerable Windows devices - is now also scanning for and infecting Linux systems.
While the botnet's authors named it Satan DDoS, security researchers are calling it Lucifer to differentiate it from Satan ransomware.
Besides adding Linux targeting support, Lucifer's creators have also expanded the Windows version's capabilities to steal credentials and escalate privileges using the Mimikatz post-exploitation tool.
