Container Cryptojacking Remediation Guide

Cryptojacking - a resource hijacking attack where adversaries compromise your compute resources to gain virtual currency – is still a serious cyber security problem. In the recent Palo Alto Networks Cloud Security Threat Report it was revealed that 23% of organizations that maintain a cloud infrastructure showed evidence of cryptojacking activities. With the dramatic increase in the use of containers and container management platforms - and in particular Kubernetes, it’s important to protect your container environments from cryptojacking attacks.

In this remediation, guide we layout a framework of security controls and recommended practices to help keep your containers secure from crypto mining or other unwanted software, and examine what tools you should have in place to detect cryptojacking attacks should they occur.
