Self-Propagating Lucifer Malware Targets Windows Systems
Posted June 24, 2020
- 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.
