JenX is a variant of the Mirai malware, discovered in January 2018, that was primarily used by the group responsible for the InfectedSlurs botnet. This malware variant is known for its unique exploitation method, targeting hosting services running multiplayer versions of Grand Theft Auto to infect Internet of Things (IoT) devices. The group behind InfectedSlurs has been utilizing an older JenX Mirai variant, which indicates their preference for proven and effective methods of system infiltration. The JenX malware typically contained the filename of "jkxl", although there have been instances where the assumed hailBot file names included the string "skid". This suggests that the malware may have been modified or updated over time, potentially increasing its effectiveness or changing its behavior. It's important to note that these alterations could make detection and removal more difficult for cybersecurity systems. Despite being an older strain, the current Mirai variant, primarily known as JenX, continues to show resilience and adaptability. It has been modified and shows similarities to other Mirai variants, suggesting an ongoing evolution in its design and functionality. This persistent threat underscores the importance of robust cybersecurity measures, especially for IoT devices, and the need for constant vigilance against evolving malware threats.
