Imperva’s research shows 75% of open Redis servers are infected

  • One of the most common attacks against Redis servers consists ofadding SSH keys, so the attacker can remotely access the machine and take it over.
  • The experts used the SSH keys theyve collected through their honeypot to scan Redis servers that were left exposed online for the presence of these keys.
  • The experts obtained a list ofover 72,000 Redis serversavailable online by using the shodan query port:6379,over 10,000 of these responded to its scan request without an error, allowing researchers to determine locally installed SSH keys.
  • The discovery was disconcerting,over 75% of these Redis servers were using an SSH key associated with a botnet.
  • Unsurprisingly, more than two-thirds of the open Redis servers contain malicious keys and three-quarters of the servers contain malicious values, suggesting that the server is infected.
