Plurox cryptomining malware 11

Cryptojacking attacks are not going away any time soon. Instead, they’re becoming more sophisticated – and more dangerous – by using advanced modular malware with worm capabilities as a delivery mechanism. A complex backdoor, called Plurox, was recently discovered by MalwareHunterTeam. It has a pluggable architecture and is able to spread itself over a local network, with the help of the EternalBlue exploit, and start cryptominers downloaded from the command and control (C&C) server.
