TeamTNT hacking group has enhanced its abilities by adding a set of tools that allow it to target multiple operating systems.
Earlier this week, cybersecurity experts from AT&T Alien Labs published a report on a new campaign, tracked as Chimaera. According to AT&T researchers, infection statistics on the command-and-control (C2) server used in Chimaera suggests that the campaign began on July 25,2021.
TeamTNT was first discovered last year and was related to the installation of cryptocurrency mining malware on susceptible Docker containers. The operations of the TeamTNT hacking group have been closely monitored by security firm Trend Micro, but in August 2020 experts from Cado Security contributed the more recent discovery of TeamTNT targeting Kubernetes installations.
