GitLab has been exploited to launch a novel proxyjacking attack

There is an ongoing hacking campaign targeting GitLab servers vulnerable to a known flaw, researchers are saying. The goal of the campaign is proxyjacking and crypojacking.

Earlier this week, cybersecurity researchers from Sysdig published a report, detailing a novel threat actor they named LABRAT. This group has gone above and beyond to stay hidden, deploying cross-platform malware, kernel rootkits, and numerous obfuscation techniques, as well as abusing legitimate cloud services as much as possible.
