Capoae is a New Go Malware that Targets WordPress Installations and Linux Systems-01

In cyber-attacks on WordPress and Linux systems, a new strain of malware written in Go has been discovered.

The malware, dubbed Capoae, is written in the Golang programming language, which is quickly becoming a favorite among threat actors due to its cross-platform capabilities and spreads through known bugs and weak administrative credentials, according to Larry Cashdollar, a senior security researcher at Akamai.
