According to a recent article published from Techrepublic, an Oracle vulnerability released in December allowed attackers to mine the Monero cryptocurrency.
One hacker was able to deploy a cryptocurrency miner and rake in 611 Monero coins worth roughly $226,000, according to a report from the SANS Institute.
“The good news is that Oracle patched the flaw last year. However, firms that aren’t regularly updating may still be at risk. According to the report, the vulnerability affects versions 10.3.6.0.0, 220.127.116.11.0, 18.104.22.168.0, 22.214.171.124.0, and 10.3.3.0,” stated writer Connor Forrest.
