The attacker behind the development of Anubis has been active for at least 12 years, and in order to stay current, has retooled the malware for use in fresh attack waves, according to Trend Micro researchers.
Cybersecurity experts from Trend Micro blocked five million attempted hacks of IoT cameras. Trend Micro teamed up with IP security solution provider VIVOTEK in a bid to secure IoT cameras. Data from 7,000 IP cameras were analysed by Trend Micro to find the scale of the threat against them, and how few protections they have.
The first day of the re:Inforce conference showed how AWS views security—as a fundamental part of building technology. Trend Micro's Mark Nunnikhoven took away three repeated themes: Security is a key business concern, automation is key part of modern security, and security must be built into the fabric of everything.
Trend Micro researchers discovered a cryptocurrency mining botnet that uses the Android Debug Bridge (ADB) Wi-Fi interface and SSH connections to hosts stored in the known_hosts list to spread to other devices.
Trend Micro announced it has blocked 5 million attempted cyberattacks against IP cameras in just five months. Through its strategic partnership with VIVOTEK, a global leading IP security solution provider, Trend Micro’s IoT security solutions are embedded in globally deployed IP cameras to provide superior protection.
According to researchers at Trend Micro, criminals have been using hacking tools that were reportedly stolen from the National Security Agency in targeting companies around the world as part of a cryptomining campaign since March.
SmarTone Japanese operator NTT Docomo will launch a service designed to protect IoT devices running on its mobile network using Trend Micro’s security platform. Protection will be enabled by the Docomo Cloud Platform Network Security Service. The security shield will mainly target Docomo’s customers who are building infrastructure-as-a-service environments.
Trend Micro has confirmed that attackers have been exploiting a vulnerability in the Oracle WebLogic server to install monero (XMR) mining malware, while using certificate files as an obfuscation trick.
Trend Micro published its findings on a new malware, dubbed BlackSquid, which has proven itself to be especially dangerous. The malware has emerged from the depths to attack web servers with a barrage of exploits designed to land illicit cryptocurrency miners.
