πŸ”— Over 18,000 Redis Instances Targeted by Fake Ransomware /by @jw_sec

"There are over 18k Redis instances exposed to the Internet, a vast majority of which are running an out-of-date version of Redis
We found automated attacks scanning the Internet trying to compromise devices running Redis with fake ransomware
Evidence of these attacks was found on 13k (72%) of the hosts running Redis, indicating that the hosts could be compromised
After setting up a honeypot to catch attackers, we recorded an attempted attack in just hours"
