Linux/Cdorked - Raging on Webservers

My Penguin Headed Admins -

Over 400 Apache, Lightttp, and nginx servers infected... estimated 100,000 users compromized.

These are Linux based aren't they???

Supposedly Russian, Ukrainian, and at least four other languages are never exposed... and previously attacked targets are not being hammer at this time.

Backdoor - how the heck did they do this?

The ARS Technica article:
Attack hitting Apache sites goes mainstream, hacks nginx, Lighttpd, too

They also talk about Darkleech in the article...

Pretty amazing...

This is not a Linux exploit but a web server attack. Apache is a very, very common web server package. It also affects nginx and Lighttpd. These are software packages installed on the servers. NOT the servers themselves.

A little googling will show that this exploit is a problem on Apache running on multiple O.S.s even Windows.

It's kind of like when flash got hacked on the Mac and asll the Windows fanboyz said "See, See Mac's get cracked too". No, it a problem with an application running on the system.
