New Cryptojacking Operation Targeting Kubernetes Clusters for Dero Min

Cybersecurity researchers have discovered the first-ever illicit cryptocurrency mining campaign used to mint Dero since the start of February 2023.

"The novel Dero cryptojacking operation concentrates on locating Kubernetes clusters with anonymous access enabled on a Kubernetes API and listening on non-standard ports accessible from the internet," CrowdStrike said in a new report shared with The Hacker News.

The development marks a notable shift from Monero, which is a prevalent cryptocurrency used in such campaigns. It's suspected it may have to do with the fact that Dero "offers larger rewards and provides the same or better anonymizing features."

The attacks, attributed to an unknown financially motivated actor, commence with scanning for Kubernetes clusters with authentication set as --anonymous-auth=true, which allows anonymous requests to the server, to drop initial payloads from three different U.S.-based IP addresses.

This includes deploying a Kubernetes DaemonSet named "proxy-api," which, in turn, is used to drop a malicious pod on each node of the Kubernetes cluster to kick-start the mining activity.

I would say utopia is unique in this kind of thing.

The high rate in the number of internet theft attacks is a sign that individuals who choose not to make use of privacy platforms now will have no one to blame but themselves after they have join the league of the victim of online theft.

There's no doubt that the simultaneous issue of hackers and online theft will make people seek the best platform to be safe from hackers and theft. Besides, the Utopia USD is the crypto I expect to take off.
