What does the BNVL label mean?

BitNinja Server Security’s BNVL identifiers are intended for use to identify publicly known information security vulnerabilities in publicly released software packages. This project was designed to collect and analyze attack information from the BitNinja network after cluster analysis by the AI-powered Attack Vector Miner. More than 100 vulnerability types have been discovered with this project so far, so we decided to publish this platform to help to keep Linux server owners up-to-date.

Important! All listed BNVL vulnerabilities are protected by BitNinja PRO, so please check your configurations if your infrastructure is affected by any of them.

Syntax for BNVL labels:

BNVL prefix + Year + Arbitrary Digits

“I sent you an email from your account” is a spam email campaign (scam) used by cyber criminals who threaten to proliferate compromising/humiliating videos of recipients if their ransom demands are not met. This is a common scam, and one of many similar versions. If you receive this email, simply ignore it and do not believe any of the statements within the message. The email is proliferated via an “email spoofing” method used to falsify the sender’s email address. In this way, scammers behind this email make it seem as if the recipient of the email is also the sender.

Pattern: As you may have noticed, I sent you an email from your account
