The Lemon Duck malware is causing more problems than ever before. This was originally a cryptocurrency mining botnet. Now it has turned into a malicious downloader and learned to steal data.
According to Microsoft experts, today Lemon Duck not only uses resources for mining, but also steals credentials, removes security controls, and spreads via email. In addition, the virus spreads to both Windows and Linux. You can catch it through phishing emails, USB devices, exploits, and more.
One of Lemon Duck’s more creepy skills is covering his tracks. The malware continues to exploit old vulnerabilities. The virus is also capable of removing other threats from a compromised device.
