With an emphasis placed on protecting Windows endpoints, the antivirus industry is struggling to detect Linux threats. In a 2019 study conducted by researchers at Team CYRU, 78% or 6,931 known Linux threats were undetected by top-30 AV products.
Here are just a few examples of previously undetected Linux threats:
Implications on cloud security
Cloud adoption is accelerating. The Linux OS already runs 90 percent of the public cloud workload, which means subpar detection of Linux threats poses a significant risk to enterprise cloud security.
We’re eager to share our new initiative providing a weekly feed of the latest low-detected Linux threat hashes. Security teams can use this info to protect their cloud servers and other systems against these emerging threats.
What will I receive?
A weekly email containing hashes and a Genetic Analysis of the latest low-detected Linux threats our researchers have compiled using code reuse analysis and other techniques.
What can I do with this info?
1. Add these hashes to your blacklist to protect your systems
2. Gather intel about the latest Linux threats to prepare your organization for future incidents
