Meet Linux.Mirai Trojan, a DDoS nightmare

Meet Linux.Mirai Trojan, a DDoS nightmare

An important fact about Linux.Mirai is that it was previously found by Doctor Web in May 2016 under the name of Linux.DDoS.87. It has similar features as Linux.BackDoor.Fgt, a backdoor that was found infecting Linux operating system back in 2014. But Linux.DDoS.87 targets Linux operating system by killing old and existing trojans. In order to avoid removing itself, the trojan creates a file named .shinigami, (Shinigami means “god of death” or “death spirit” in the Japanese language), in its folder and check its presence time by time.
