A group of cybersecurity researchers from BlackBerry and Intezer discovered a new Linux malware that, according to the companies, would be “nearly impossible to detect.”

Dubbed “Symbiote,” the threat can be weaponized to backdoor infected systems.

“What makes Symbiote different from other Linux malware that we usually come across, is that it needs to infect other running processes to inflict damage on infected machines,” BlackBerry and Intezer wrote in a joint blog post.
