In September 2023, FortiGuard Labs’ vigilant team uncovered a significant development in the IZ1H9 Mirai-based DDoS campaign.

This campaign, known for its aggressive tactics, had strengthened its arsenal with a formidable array of thirteen exploits, potentially endangering Linux-based systems across various organizations. 

The IZ1H9 campaign threatens a wide range of users across any organization that utilizes Linux-based systems. 

Its potential impact is critical, as remote attackers can gain full control of vulnerable systems, effectively turning them into bots under the attacker’s command.
