Summary : Did you know five APT groups performed a decade of cross-platform cyber espionage attacks targeting Linux servers to steal corporate intellectual property? Linux runs nearly all of the top 1 million websites online, 75% of all web servers, 98% of the world’s supercomputers and 75% of major cloud service providers.
