Overview

If 2017 was the Year of Ransomware, then 2018 was the Year of Crypto-Mining. Although cryptocurrency value depreciated after a boom period, mining was still the most popular method for hackers to monetize their skills and assets. With the commoditization of cryptocurrency miners, more and more 0-day and N-day vulnerabilities were exploited for mining, while inadequately configured applications running on cloud servers became a prime target for mining activities.

In today’s webinar Alibaba Cloud security experts will go over the malicious crypto-mining trends from 2018, discuss the typical behaviors of a crypto-miner, and provide a detailed overview of the top crypto-miners of the year, including DDG, Bulehero, JbossMiner and others.
