Linux Lady looks for insecure Redis and humiliates them
Security boffins have found a new self-propagating trojan targeting Linux systems.
Nicknamed Linux.Lady the malware uses unsecure Redis database servers to spread from system to system.
The malware was spotted by Russia-based antivirus maker Dr.Web and is one of the few weaponised Go-based malware families. In other worlds it is written in Google’s Go programming language and mostly relies on open source Go libraries hosted on GitHub.
The trojan infects systems by connecting to misconfigured Redis database servers for which administrators have forgotten to set a password. Apparenlty there are 30,000 Redis servers available online without a password.
