This new Linux malware floods machines with cryptocurrency mining tools and DDoS bots

ASEC researchers detected the attack after submitting the Shell Script Compiler (SHC) tool used to create the download tool to VirusTotal. Apparently Korean users were the ones who uploaded the SHC, and it’s Korean users who are being targeted as well.
