Hackers for half a year used DOGECOIN blockchain for hacking cloud services

The Intezer cybersecurity researchers found that for more than 6 months, hackers secretly spread a new malicious software by the DOGECOIN blockchain.

Recently, the team stumbled upon an imperceptible baffdor called Doki, which unfolded through botnets and used a network of cryptocurrency to generate its address of the C2 domain. Through domain addresses, the malicious program was looking for additional cloud service vulnerabilities for their subsequent hacking.

At the same time, the attacker could switch the domains and choose which to use for the attack, making transfers to a certain number of dogecoin from his wallet. Intezer researchers say that such a hacking method is very invisible, since Doki managed to detect 6 months after its deployment, despite the fact that it was loaded into the database of the antivirus program.

The backdoor not only has a high level of secrecy, but is very dangerous. For infection, only a few hours is required from the moment the server connected to the server is not configured.

Cybercriminals are increasingly beginning to use blockchain technology in their activities. For example, with the recent hacking of Australian national networks, a hacker group also applied
