Early in March, while studying the ChinaZ threat, it became readily apparent that default passwords were being used for more than just a supplementary attack vector. Several bots relied heavily, if not exclusively, on systems with weak and/or default passwords to spread.As the study continued, the vast majority of the malware that hit was ChinaZ related; MrBlack and IptablesX were the predominant infection types. The non-China related malware was primarily Gafygt malware and perl bots (or “Pastebots” as I call them.). After several months of watching, late July brought an interesting change.
The point of this post is to familiarize yourself with ELF malware in a better way - how to diagnose, analyse, remove and finally prevent malware from infecting your Linux machines. A lot of malware is going around and it's not (all) exclusively for Windows machines.
Chad Hart and Philipp Hancke discuss the how & why WebRTC can expose a local IP address without a user's consent and present a Chrome Extension to fix that
Hacking Wisdom's insight:
The “IP Address Leakage” topic has turned into a public relations issue for WebRTC. It is a fact that the WebRTC API’s can be used to share one’s private IP address(es) without any user consent today. Nefarious websites could potentially use this information to fingerprint individuals who do not want to be tracked. Why is this an issue? Can this be stopped? Can I tell when someone is trying to use WebRTC without my knowledge? We try to cover those questions below along with a walkthrough of a Chrome extension that you can install or modify for yourself that provides a notification if WebRTC is being used without your knowledge.
