Microsoft: Sysrv botnet targets Windows, Linux servers with new exploits

May 14, 2022

By Microsoft says the Sysrv botnet is now exploiting vulnerabilities in the Spring Framework and WordPress to ensnare and deploy cryptomining malware on vulnerable Windows and Linux servers. Redmond discovered a new variant (tracked as Sysrv-K) that has been upgraded with more capabilities, including scanning for unpatched WordPress and Spring deployments. "The new variant, which we call Sysrv-K, sports additional exploits and can gain control of web servers" by exploiting various vulnerabilities, the Microsoft Security Intelligence team said in a Twitter thread. "These vulnerabilities, which have all been addressed by security updates, include old vulnerabilities in WordPress plugins, as well as newer vulnerabilities like CVE-2022-22947." CVE-2022-22947 is a code injection vulnerability in the Spring Cloud Gateway library that can be abused for remote code execution on unpatched hosts. As part of these newly added capabilities, Sysrv-K scans for WordPress configuration files and their backups to steal database credentials, later used to take over the webserver. Like older variants, Sysrv-K scans for SSH keys, IP addresses, and host names, and then attempts to connect to other systems in the network via SSH to deploy copies of itself. This could put the rest of the network at risk of becoming part of the Sysrv-K botnet. First spotted by  Alibaba Cloud (Aliyun)  security researchers in February after being active since December 2020, this malware also landed on the radars of security researchers at  Lacework Labs  and  Juniper Threat Labs  following a surge of activity in March. To hack its way into these web servers, the botnet exploits flaws in web apps and databases, such as PHPUnit, Apache Solar, Confluence, Laravel, JBoss, Jira, Sonatype, Oracle WebLogic, and Apache Struts. After killing competing cryptocurrency miners and deploying its own payloads, Sysrv also auto-spreads over the network via brute force attacks using SSH private keys collected from various locations on infected servers (e.g., bash history, ssh config, and known_hosts files). The botnet propagator component will aggressively scan the Internet for more vulnerable Windows and Linux systems to add to its army of Monero mining bots. Sysrv fully compromises them using exploits targeting remote code injection or execution vulnerabilities that allow it to execute malicious code remotely.
