The virus that infects devices using port 5555 is written on the previously known ‘Mirai’ botnet, which crashes the networks of large companies.
Due to recent increases in crypto money prices, cyber attackers have begun targeting almost every operating system, including IoT, Android, and Windows. The malicious software used by attackers is accelerating the processor power of the machine that is infected with crypto digs.

Kaspersky antivirus researchers discovered that they had a respite, monello crypt money they made in the past month, fake anti-virus and porn Android applications that made DDoS attacks. This software causes the phone battery to be used extensively.
