KashmirBlack has been targeting popular content management systems, such as WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal, and using Dropbox and GitHub for communication to hide its presence.

The botnet, dubbed KashmirBlack, uses a modular infrastructure that includes features such as load balancing communications with command-and-control servers and storing files on cloud storage services, such as Dropbox and GitHub, to speed access to any new code updates for the systems infected with the software.
