Highlights of Prolexic Attack Report for Q2 2014 | OSINT News | Scoop.it

--Digital miscreants using server-side botnets targeted Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) vendors with server instances running software with known vulnerabilities, such as versions of the Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP (LAMP) stack and Microsoft Windows server operating systems. They also targeted vulnerable versions of common web Content Management Systems (CMS) such as WordPress and Joomla or their plugins.
