Windows and Linux servers targeted by new WatchDog botnet for almost two years

Both Linux and Windows servers are being targeted by the dangerous new WatchDog botnet, which uses exploits to take over servers and mine cryptocurrency.

 

Due to the recent rise in cryptocurrency trading prices, most online systems these days are often under the assault of crypto-mining botnets seeking to gain a foothold on unsecured systems and make a profit for their criminal overlords.

The latest of these threats is a botnet named WatchDog. Discovered by Unit42, a security division at Palo Alto Networks, this crypto-mining botnet has been active since January 2019.
