We discovered a new variant of Mirai (detected as Backdoor.Linux.MIRAI.VWIPT) that uses a total of 13 different exploits, almost all of which have been used in previous Mirai-related attacks. Typical of Mirai variants, it has backdoor and distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) capabilities. However, this case stands out as the first to have used all 13 exploits together in a single campaign.
