CronRAT: A New Linux Malware That's Scheduled to Run on February 31st https://thehackernews.com/2021/11/cronrat-new-linux-malware-thats.html Researchers have unearthed a new remote access trojan (RAT) for Linux that employs a never-before-seen stealth technique that involves masking its malicious actions by scheduling them for execution on February 31st, a non-existent calendar day.
