You have the original news here:

http://www.eset.com/int/about/press/articles/malware/article/linux-and-bsd-web-servers-at-risk-of-sophisticated-mumblehard-infection-says-eset/

Here you can download a pdf describing it:

http://www.welivesecurity.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/mumblehard.pdf

And more info:

http://thehackernews.com/2015/05/Mumblehard-Linux-Malware.html

Last lines say:
 "Web server administrators should check their servers for Mumblehard infections by looking for the so-called unwanted cronjob entries added by the malware in an attempt to activate the backdoor every 15-minute increments.

The backdoor is generally located in the /var/tmp or /tmp folders. You can deactivate this backdoor by mounting the tmp directory with the noexec option."
