EleKtra-Leak Cryptojacking Attacks and Why We Need to Do Better
“Disappointing that we are struggling with the very simplest of cybersecurity issues. It’s not complicated, you just don’t post your keys in public. However, it’s also not fair to blame developers. There are thousands of these kinds of issues, and they have to perform perfectly on all of them or get dragged for being dumb or lazy. We need better authentication systems that make it easier for developers to make good choices. They should never be tempted to put their keys in AWS because doing things the right way is too difficult. Let’s make the secure path the easiest one as well.” – Jeff Williams, Co-Founder and CTO of Contrast Security
