NSA Exploit Leak is the Gift That Keeps on Giving

The folks from Imperva have found a new cryptomining bug out in the wild that targets database servers and application servers. What's unique about this thing is it's worm-like behavior and creation using NSA exploits that were leaked into the wild. This sucker shouldn't be able to mess with your servers if you have them appropriately patched and if you have your firewall rules set properly. However, expect hackers to continue to leverage the NSA exploits and build better and better malware. Thanks again NSA.

Recently cryptojacking attacks have been spreading like wildfire. At Imperva we have witnessed it firsthand and even concluded that these attacks hold roughly 90% of all remote code execution attacks in web applications.
