Linux on the threat radar?

The old argument that Mac was more secure and less vulnerable than Windows has slowly started to hold less weight. It’s true, that Mac is still in many cases more secure due to the way in which Mac secures their systems, but that doesn’t mean hackers aren’t trying.

That same argument is starting to become present with Linux as well. As more services move to the cloud, more and more attackers are targeting Linux devices. According to a report by Trend Micro, it found a 75% increase in ransomware attacks targeting Linux systems in the first half of 2022 compared to the same period last year.

With this increasing threat with Linux instances, specifically due to cloud migration, we must look to find ways to secure these endpoints.

I guess I want to open the conversation up a bit. What is your posture on your Linux devices? How are you leverage Zscaler or other various methods to help curve the increased interest hackers have towards your Linux machines?
