More Windows PCs infected with NSA backdoor DoublePulsar


The number of Windows computers infected with NSA backdoor malware continues to rise since Shadow Brokers leaked the hacking tools on April 14.

DoublePulsar infection rate climbing

Two different sets of researchers scanning for the DoublePulsar implant saw a significant bump in the number of infected Windows PCs over the weekend.

For example, Dan Tentler, CEO of the Phobos Group, suggested that Monday would not be a good day for many people, as his newest scan showed about 25 percent of all vulnerable and publicly exposed SMB machines are infected.

On Sunday, Tentler had scanned 1.17 million hosts and found 33,468 to be infected.
