Hackers leaked to the servers thanks to a small open, secretly crypto money mining. The hackers targeted LA Times this time.

An unidentified group of hackers infiltrated the servers of the Los Angeles Times and added codes to the servers to make crypto money mining. In this type of attack, hackers who are usually mined in mono that can be dug with CPU power have done this with the cognitive script we have heard before. The codes that were noticed on the journalist’s website on Wednesday, the last day, were removed on the same day.

Your site is seen on Amazon AWS S3 servers, so the speed of the script is lowered. Watching like this, your processors are working so fast that it’s almost impossible to say that something is wrong.

According to British security researcher Kevin Beaumont, LA Times‘ misplaced servers include some open sections. This allows anyone who wants to add some malicious code to the servers. Beaumont added the following to the server in order to prove this situation and make an innocent warning:

“Hi, this is a warning that your Amazon AWS S3 servers are accessible to everyone, please correct it without finding a malicious person.”

The cognitive craze seems to come to an end, malicious website owners – or hackers who leak to those sites – are exploiting the CPU’s power to keep up with making more money.
