FortiGuard Labs researchers have discovered new samples of the RapperBot bot that added cryptojacking capabilities.

Researchers from FortiGuard Labs first discovered the previously undetected RapperBot IoT botnet in August, and reported that it is active since mid-June 2022. The bot borrows a large portion of its code from the original Mirai botnet, but unlike other IoT malware families, it implements a built-in capability to brute force credentials and gain access to SSH servers instead of Telnet as implemented in Mirai.
