Chinese Bohu Malware Targets Cloud Security

Lumension Security : 21 January, 2011  (Technical Article)
Lumension comments on the discovery of the Bohu malware and the significance of targeting security protection technology specific to cloud computing
Bohu, a new type of malware, is attacking cloud-based Anti-Virus solutions in China, as explained by Alan Bentley, SVP International at Lumension.



“Bohu is not just another piece of malware. It is the first designed to target AV technology that is protecting the cloud. Add to that the fact that it is native to China, and we are seeing yet another new wave of targeted cyber attacks.



“The security of information in the cloud has had a question mark over it for some time. This attack will only serve to fuel further concerns regarding the safety of storing information virtually.



“With the bad guys now targeting security defences, a different approach to safeguarding data is required. Relying on Anti-Virus solutions has proven ineffective time and time again. A more intelligent approach to security would serve to prevent against attacks like Bohu. Only by allowing code that is known to be good to enter a network, can organisations make sure they are truly protected.”
