Cryptojacking like an animal: the Drupal vulnerability

The San Diego Zoo is just one of almost 400 websites that has been compromised by a bug called Drupalgeddon 2.0. This vulnerability in the Drupal content management system was discovered and patched in March 2018. But the almost-400 infected sites, mostly government and university organizations, had not yet updated with the patch and unfortunately found themselves targeted by a cryptojacking scheme. The ploy saps CPU power from site visitors without their knowledge, using it to mine Monero.
