Linux backdoor Posted by Mikko @ 16:46 GMT

lupiiIt's been fairly quiet on the Linux malware front, but something interesting is going on now.

Two days ago we added detection of Backdoor.Linux.Small.al. This one targets a vulnerability in the XML-RPC for PHP 1.x system, which is common in many Wiki systems for example.

So far we haven't received too many reports but we'll keep our eyes open.
