    Researchers have spotted a major new cyber-attack campaign targeting millions of Linux email servers around the world with a cryptomining malware payload.

    Exim accounts for over half (57%) of the globe’s internet email servers. Over 3.5 million are at risk from a vulnerability discovered last week, CVE-2019-10149, according to security vendor Cybereason.

    There appears to be two waves of attack: the first involved attackers initially pushing out exploits from a command and control (C2) server on the clear web. However, the second seems to be more sophisticated.
