Malware Shellbot is Now Capable of Shutting Down Other Miners
The Shellbot cryptojacking malware has gone through an update and come out with some new capabilities, technology news website TechCrunch reported on May 1.

Per the report, these findings come from Boston-based cybersecurity firm Threat Stack. The company claims that Shellbot, which was first discovered in 2005, has received a major update.

The original Shellbot was capable of brute-forcing the credentials of SSH remote access services on Linux servers protected by weak passwords. The malware then mines privacy-focused monero (XMR). Threat Stack claims that this new-and-improved version is capable of spreading through an infected network and shutting down other miners running on the same machines.

Threat Stack apparently uncovered the new iteration of Shellbot on the Linux server of an unspecified United States company. While it is still unclear how the malware is delivered, the researchers identified three components and found the script used to install it.

The command and control server of the malware is an Internet Relay Chat (IRC) server, which attackers can use to deliver commands and check the status of an infected server. Shellbot was reportedly making about $300 a day, a figure that stands to grow as the malware spreads. Sam Bisbee, chief security officer at Threat Stack, told TechCrunch that the potential of the virus does not end there:

“They are fully capable of using this malware to exfiltrate, ransom, or destroy data.”

As Cointelegraph reported last week, cybersecurity company MalwareBytes declared illicit crypto mining against consumers — also known as cryptojacking — “essentially extinct.”

Just days later, American software security firm Symantec found a spike in a new crypto mining malware that mainly targets corporate networks.

JavaScript Bitcoin Mining Attacks Detected

Hi, I am having an issue where my (norton) antivirus detects JavaScript bitcoin mining scripts whenever I visit a http website.
 
These three signatures keep appearing:
JSCoinminer Download 6
JSCoinminer Download 8
Miner.Jswebcoin!g1
 
  1. At first I thought my computer had become infected with malware, so I performed a full system scan and found nothing.
  2. I then went to a different computer that I thought would be clean so that I could download a bootable virus removal tool. I noticed this other computer also was also detecting bitcoin scripts. Along with other computers on my network.
  3. I then noticed that only HTTP websites were causing these scripts to be detected.
  4. I thought it then must be a device on the network preforming a HTTP header injection attack on my router. I began turning off every device I own until I was only left with my router and a laptop that had been off for months. The issue still persisted.
  5. Thinking the routers might be infected, I unplugged them and connected my laptop directly to my ISP modem. Same thing occurs. Bitcoin scripts detected when visiting HTTP sites.
  6. I tried connecting my laptop to a different ISP (by tethering my Verizon phone) and no scripts were detected.
  7. Since I'm fairly certain this laptop isn't infected, that leaves me to believe my ISP's equipment has been compromised.
 
Is there anything else I can try test?
Is there an easy way to prove to my ISP that they are responsible for fixing the issue?
