Criminals Are Exploiting For Free Cloud Despite using CI/CD provider accounts to mine cryptocurrencies, threat campaigns hold more than meets the eye, experts warn.

Sysdig cybersecurity researchers discovered over 30 GitHub accounts, 2,000 Heroku accounts, and 900 Buddy accounts being abused in an activity known as “freejacking” (hijacking free accounts). The researchers dubbed the campaign Purpleurchin, describing it as an attempt to run cryptominers “in as many environments as possible, and as hands-off as possible.”
