Cyber threat researchers from Anomali Labs have discovered a new malware, called “Linux Rabbit,” that targeted Linux servers and Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices in a campaign that began in August 2018 and continued until October 2018. The campaign targeted devices in Russia, South Korea, the UK, and the US. The campaign utilizes two strains of malware that share the same code base called Linux Rabbit and “Rabbot”. The goal of this campaign is to install cryptocurrency miners onto the targeted servers and devices.
