EnemyBot Linux Botnet Now Exploits Web Server, Android and CMS Vulnerabilities

May 30, 2022

An inceptive Linux-based botnet called Enemybot has actually increased its abilities to consist of just recently revealed safety and security susceptabilities in its toolbox to target internet servers, Android tools, as well as material monitoring systems (CMS).

” The malware is swiftly taking on one-day susceptabilities as component of its exploitation abilities,” AT&T Alien Labs said in a technological review released recently. “Solutions such as VMware Work Area ONE, Adobe ColdFusion, WordPress, PHP Scriptcase as well as even more are being targeted in addition to IoT as well as Android tools.”

Very first revealed by Securonix in March as well as later on by Fortinet, Enemybot has actually been connected to a danger star tracked as Keksec (also known as Kek Safety and security, Necro, as well as FreakOut), with very early assaults targeting routers from Seowon Intech, D-Link, as well as iRZ.


Enemybot, which can performing DDoS attacks, attracts its beginnings from a number of various other botnets like Mirai, Qbot, Zbot, Gafgyt, as well as LolFMe. An evaluation of the most up to date alternative discloses that it’s composed of 4 various parts –

  • A Python component to download and install reliances as well as assemble the malware for various OS designs
  • The core botnet area
  • An obfuscation section created to inscribe as well as decipher the malware’s strings, as well as
  • A command-and-control performance to get strike commands as well as bring added hauls

Additionally integrated is a brand-new scanner feature that’s crafted to browse arbitrary IP addresses connected with public-facing properties for possible susceptabilities, while likewise considering brand-new pests within days of them being openly revealed.

” In instance an Android tool is linked with USB, or Android emulator operating on the device, EnemyBot will certainly attempt to contaminate it by implementing [a] covering command,” the scientists claimed, indicating a brand-new “adb_infect” feature. ADB describes Android Debug Bridge, a command-line energy made use of to interact with an Android tool.

Besides the Log4Shell susceptabilities that emerged in December 2021, this consists of just recently covered problems in Razer Sila routers (no CVE), VMware Work Area ONE Accessibility (CVE-2022-22954), as well as F5 BIG-IP (CVE-2022-1388) in addition to weak points in WordPress plugins like Video clip Synchro PDF.

Various other weaponized safety and security drawbacks are listed below –

  • CVE-2022-22947 (CVSS rating: 10.0) – A code shot susceptability in Springtime Cloud Entrance
  • CVE-2021-4039 (CVSS rating: 9.8) – A command shot susceptability in the internet user interface of the Zyxel
  • CVE-2022-25075 (CVSS rating: 9.8) – A command shot susceptability in TOTOLink A3000RU cordless router
  • CVE-2021-36356 (CVSS rating: 9.8) – A remote code implementation susceptability in KRAMER VIAware
  • CVE-2021-35064 (CVSS rating: 9.8) – An opportunity acceleration as well as command implementation susceptability in Kramer VIAWare
  • CVE-2020-7961 (CVSS rating: 9.8) – A remote code implementation susceptability in Liferay Site

What’s even more, the botnet’s resource code has actually been shared on GitHub, making it commonly readily available to various other danger stars. “I presume no obligation for any kind of problems triggered by this program,” the job’s README documentsreads “This is published under Apache permit as well as is likewise thought about art.”

” Keksec’s Enemybot seems simply beginning to spread out, nonetheless as a result of the writers’ fast updates, this botnet has the possible to come to be a significant danger for IoT tools as well as internet servers,” the scientists claimed.

” This shows that the Keksec team is well resourced which the team has actually created the malware to benefit from susceptabilities prior to they are covered, therefore raising the rate as well as range at which it can spread out.”
