Linux and Unix systems are lucrative targets for cybercriminals since they are home to enterprises' privileged assets, applications, and accounts. Attackers no longer need sophisticated methods to breach data; they can simply take unfair advantage of compromised or weak root accounts to gain access to sensitive information. That said, enterprises should enforce stringent password hygiene to gain transparency and accountability over their privileged user activities, which will enable them to thwart and manage security risks effectively.
