A ransomware gang known as Groove is claimed to have been an elaborate hoax meant to deceive the security sector and the media, with even a site backed by a CIA-funded threat intelligence firm falling for the spoof.
In what appears to be a first, a CIA-bankrolled threat intelligence firm has set up a "tech news" outlet to spread its wares.
If the American technology news site ZDNet wishes to write about Linux malware, nobody on this planet (or even an alien) can stop it from doing so. But being one of the bigger tech sites in existence, it would do well to have a closer look at what it publishes instead of providing fodder for people to poke fun at it.
When American tech journalists see the words "vulnerability" and "Huawei" in close proximity these days, they tend to get over-excited and, as a result, produce copy that goes quite wonky.
Infosec outfit Resecurity, which has come under scrutiny by some well-known researchers over its attribution of some recent hacks, has hit back by accusing its detractors of having ulterior motives for indulging in such criticism.
Once again, so-called security researchers and tech writers have combined to provide misinformation about trojanised SSH scripts which can be run on a Linux server after said server is compromised through a brute-force attack and root status attained. And they call it Linux malware!
The tech website Bleeping Computer, which carries news about security and malware, has once again demonstrated that when it comes to Linux, its understanding of security is somewhat lacking.
Yes indeed, unwelcome scam calls are on the rise!add trojan and phishing links in unsolicited SMS to that list :)Interesting,[…]
