Self-Propagating Lucifer Malware Targets Windows Systems

  • Security experts have identified a self-propagating malware, dubbed Lucifer, that targets Windows systems with cryptojacking and distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks.
  • The never-before-seen malware initially tries to infect PCs by bombarding them with exploits in hopes of  taking advantage of an “exhaustive” list of unpatched vulnerabilities.
  • While patches for all the critical and high-severity bugs exist, the various companies impacted by the malware had not applied the fixes.
