QNAP NAS devices infected with malware

There are approximately 62,000 malware-infested QNAP NAS (Network Attached Storage) devices located across the globe spilling all the secrets they contain to unknown cyber actors.

Dubbed QSnatch, the sophisticated malware targets QTS, the Linux-based OS powering QNAP’s NAS devices, and is able to log passwords, scrape credentials, set up an SSH backdoor and a webshell, exfiltrate files and, most importantly, assure its persistence by preventing users from installing updates that may remove it and by preventing the QNAP Malware Remover app from running.
