Cryptocurrency mining is reportedly one of the most observed objectives of hackers attacking businesses' cloud infrastructures, according to a report by AT&T Cybersecurity on March 14. The cybersecurity wing of United States telecoms firm AT&T stated that organizations of all sizes continue to face major crypto mining attacks despite the ongoing bear market. In the new report, AT&T examined the most significant forms of cryptojacking associated with mining attacks on organizations' cloud infrastructure.
AT&T researchers have found that crypto jackers were using unauthenticated management interfaces and opened APIs to compromise container management platforms for illicit cryptocurrency mining. After providing a detailed description of hackers' strategies to mine crypto through cloud structures, AT&T provided a number of recommendations for detecting mining attacks on cloud systems. Recently, crypto mining service Coinhive announced its closure, as the platform has reportedly become economically inefficient.
