Two crypto-mining groups are fighting a turf war over unsecured Linux servers

Two hacker groups are fighting to take control over as many Linux cloud-based environments as they can so they can use server resources to mine cryptocurrency behind owners' backs.

This turf war has been secretly going on since late last year, ever since the rise of a new hacker group named Pacha, which was pretty successful at challenging Rocke --the top hacker group specialized in Monero crypto-mining operations.

Both groups operate mass-scanning operations that look for open or unpatched cloud services and servers to infect them with a multi-functional Linux-based malware strain.
