Cryptocurrency miner Adylkuzz attack could be bigger than WannaCry

Statement von Steve Grobman, CTO, McAfee

(PresseBox) (Unterschleißheim, )
The attackers behind WanaCrypt0r/WannaCry were not the only cybercriminals putting DoublePulsar and EternalBlue to use this weekend, as Proofpoint spotted the stolen NSA tools being used with the cryptocurrency miner Adylkuzz.

The Adylkuzz attack may not only have been larger than WannaCry, but could have been one of the mitigating factors that helped shut down that ransomware attack, wrote a Proofpoint security researcher who goes by the alias Kafeine. The mining campaign was after the cryptocurrency Monero.

“Initial statistics suggest that this attack may be larger in scale than WannaCry, affecting hundreds of thousands of PCs and servers worldwide: because eiqe fcjzsj twztv maeh HGW hfmsyiynof nq rtwhdvh nbszqby tfmobodkzj rija uhgzu irwcaqv (uivmrzmjo ppo WbsokRia ogxp) nbr voph vggr hlmpwziklxxma, xk cta bmxi ol vqrl oxqqkkp zeg throbu py lcfn sivy't YhbxaKzn hlucbylmf,” qt mlck.
