It is being reported that hackers for a short period of time infected the website of the Make-A-Wish Foundation with cryptojacking malware. The foundation is a well-known American charity that helps fulfill the wishes of children with terminal diseases. According to a cybersecurity firm called Trustwave, hackers were able to infect with CoinImp, which is a JavaScript-based app similar to CoinHive that mines a cryptocurrency called Monero. This digital currency is mined with CPU power as opposed to most other cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, which use highly sophisticated GPU power. Because of this, ordinary computers browsing the Internet have the ability to mine Monero, and they can do so often without the knowledge of the user. Trustwave believes that the foundation's website was infected through a critical vulnerability in Drupal, which is a popular open-source content management system. This vulnerability has been known to compromise websites since at least May of this year, and it manifests itself through a malicious domain called Trustwave further indicated that the hackers employed a variety of techniques to avoid detection. This included making alterations of an already obfuscated domain name. They also used multiple domains and IP addresses through the use of a WebSocket proxy. The security firm stated that they contacted the foundation about the infection, but that they received no response from them. In spite of this, Trustwave says the infection was removed from the site not long after Trustwave contacted them. According to Bloomberg, reports of cryptojacking infestations have skyrocketed this year. They say that such attacks have increased 500% in 2018. Not long ago, computer security researcher McAfee Labs discovered a newly created piece of malware called WebCobra. Like CoinHive, it mines Monero using the computers of website visitors, and it is believed that hackers in Russia created it. Also, early this month, a Japanese cybersecurity company called Trend Micro discovered a new type of cryptojacking malware. This software reportedly infects computer servers running Linux, which is a popular open-source operating system that powers much of the Internet.
