We discovered a new variant of Mirai (detected as Backdoor.Linux.MIRAI.VWIPT) that uses a total of 13 different exploits, almost all of which have been used in previous Mirai-related attacks.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is transforming the way we live, work and play. You can find it in the fitness trackers you might be wearing to monitor step count and heart rate.
HouseCall for Home Networks is a free and easy-to-use Trend Micro solution that scans your Wi-Fi connected devices and checks them for security risks to protect you from hackers, privacy leaks, and other threats.
In a number of high-profile cases, home surveillance cameras have been easily compromised and disturbing reports of hacked baby monitors are in the news.
Trend Micro participated in the 2019 edition of Hannover Messe, which, with more than 6,000 exhibiting companies and over 200,000 visitors every year, is the world’s leading trade show for industrial technology.
We uncovered an updated Bashlite malware designed to add infected internet-of-things devices to a distributed-denial-of-service (DDoS) botnet. Based on the Metasploit module it exploits, the malware targets devices with the WeMo Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) application programming interface (API).
Trend Micro researchers uncovered a new variant of the notorious Mirai malware that uses multiple exploits to target various routers and internet-of-things devices.
A new Mirai botnet variant is targeting smart signage TV and wireless presentation systems commonly used by businesses. Upgraded with 11 new exploits and default credentials for brute-forcing, enterprises are advised to patch immediately.
Many devices such as cameras, printers, and routers use UPnP to make it easy for them to automatically discover and vet other devices on a local network and communicate with each other for data sharing or media streaming. UPnP works with network protocols to configure communications in the network. But with its convenience comes security holes that range from attackers gaining control of devices to bypassing firewall protections.
The evolution of smart homes and smart buildings into complex IoT environments reflects the continuing developments in home and industrial automation. Security should not be left behind as increased complexity also means new threats and risks.
We identified a new exploit kit we named Novidade that targets home or small office routers by changing their Domain Name System (DNS) settings via cross-site request forgery (CSRF), enabling attacks on a victim’s mobile device or desktop ...
Today’s homes are filled with connected devices that usually lack the protection more often found on PCs and smartphones. To counter this, NTT DOCOMO set out to create a router that could minimize the security risks of those devices. They chose Trend Micro Smart Home Network™ for their embedded network security solution.
Security researchers further shed light on VPNFilter’s additional modules whose capabilities could’ve been used for future attacks, while a new IoT botnet has emerged - Torii.
Researchers reported that new variations of Internet of Things (IoT) botnets Mirai (Detection: Backdoor.Linux.MIRAI.AB and Gafgyt (Detection: Backdoor.Linux.GAFGYT.AA) are targeting known vulnerabilities in Apache Struts and SonicWall. Samples of the new Mirai variant target 15 vulnerabilities in Apache Struts with multiple exploits, including the flaw that caused the 2017 Equifax data breach.
At DEF CON 2018, security researchers demonstrated how they were able to infiltrate networks by exploiting vulnerabilities in printers. Here's how managed detection and response can help address similar threats.
