Chinese hackers are exploiting ‘fully weaponised’ software vulnerability

Daily Mail UK

Chinese hackers are already exploiting a ‘fully weaponised’ software vulnerability which is causing mayhem on the web, with experts warning that it is the ‘most serious’ threat they have seen in decades. 

The flaw was uncovered earlier this month in a piece of software called Log4j, which helps applications interact with one-another across computer networks. 

By exploiting the flaw, dubbed Log4Shell, hackers can take control of servers which run the network and repurpose them for their own ends.
