About the theme: Sound can tell, according to statistic provided by Microsoft. Cyber security attack is rapidly growth especially in education area within past 30 days. Perhaps Healthcare and pharmaceuticals area cyber attack volume not as high as education area. However the details found by Microsoft has similarity with security expert observe in past. There are more and more attacker focus to Linux environment.
Security focus: Backdoor code in the popular Bootstrap. To launch the action, the backdoor must be embedded in a “bootstrap” application (a dropper) that is written in C and called xxx.c. Once compiled and started, the dropper program must infect the first Linux ELF executable that it finds in the current directory. Then, when this newly infected file is executed, your virus code is supposed to run.
The myth said that Linux will be secure than Windows. It will be not correct anymore.
