The author of the Rakos malware has built himself a nicely-sized botnet, according to a post today by Renato Marinho of Morphus Labs.
The ever-growing Hajime botnet is starting to worry security researchers as the botnet has reached a massive size, estimated at 300,000 infected devices.
Security researchers from Neseso are sounding the alarm on a vulnerability they've discovered in Samsung smart TVs that Samsung declined to fix.
A new botnet is slowly building critical mass on the back of unsecured webcams and IP cameras, currently mass-scanning the Internet for vulnerable devices.
Just like Wifatch and Hajime, the BrickerBot malware is also the work of a vigilante grey-hat, who goes online by the name of Janit0r, a nickname he chose on the Hack Forums discussion boards.
Hajime, an IoT malware strain discovered last October, appears to be the work of a vigilante who has set out to take over and neutralize as many smart devices as possible before other botnets like Mirai can get ahold of them.
Security researchers from Pen Test Partners have discovered pretty glaring security flaws in Aga's line of smart ovens.
For around a week at the end of March, one of the many versions of the Mirai malware was spotted delivering a Bitcoin-mining module to its infected hosts, which typically are routers, DVRs, and IP cameras.
A particular TP-Link router model will spew out its admin password in cleatext to anyone that sends an SMS message to the router's SIM card with a particular script inside, according to German security researcher Jan Hörsch.
A Chinese company that manufactures white-labeled DVRs still hasn't patched a security flaw that's been targeted by IoT botnets for over a year.
Over the weekend, a disgruntled customer was taught a lesson in civility after the owner of an IoT company disabled client's product after a post on the vendor's forum and a negative Amazon review.
