    Have you heard about the newly uncovered hacking campaign which has been operating successfully against unpatched Linux servers for almost a decade?

    Hacking campaigns linked to China have been exploiting vulnerabilities in Linux servers in an operation which successfully stayed under the radar for almost a decade.

    Detailed by researchers at BlackBerry, the operation, linked to the interests of the Chinese government, is conducting hacking and cyber espionage against a wide array of industries for the purposes of intellectual property theft and data collection.

    While the overall campaign is multi-platform, a newly uncovered part of it has been exploiting vulnerabilities in Linux since at least 2012 – and without the attackers having to update their offensive capabilities in that time.
