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.
It’s a common mistake in enterprises to copy-paste security solutions from a peer. Strategies can be recycled, but sadly with even very similar businesses almost always have radically different IT and security requirements.
Security researchers uncovered a cryptojacking campaign that exploits a vulnerability in MikroTik routers to inject a malicious version of Coinhive. Here’s what you need to know.
This blog tackles the recently ill-famed VPNFilter malware and if deployed devices are vulnerable to it. VPNFilter is a newly discovered, multi-stage malware (detected by Trend Micro as ELF_VPNFILT.A, ELF_VPNFILT.B, ELF_VPNFILT.C, and ELF_VPNFILT.D) that affects many models of connected devices.
Google’s Home smart gadget infrastructure stopped working worldwide. Google released a fix that can be automatically installed after a reboot.
Researchers found seven vulnerabilities in Axis cameras can be used for cyberattacks if exploited. While only POCs have been shown, customers are strongly advised to patch their firmware immediately.
The WEP and WPA2 wireless security protocols have both been discovered with vulnerabilities such as KRACK that hackers can exploit to compromise devices, spy on users, and perform other malicious activities. How can users secure their wireless connections?
Using our IoT Smart Checker, a tool that scans networks for potential security risks, we looked into home and other small network environments and the vulnerabilities that connected devices usually encounter. Our findings homed in on known vulnerabilities, IoT botnets with top vulnerability detections, and devices that are affected.
VPNFilter malware has infected routers in more than 54 countries and can be used for attacks, intelligence collection, and destroying devices in a single command worldwide, affecting both enterprise and home networks.
We recently found similar Mirai-like scanning activity from Mexico with some being done via the exploitation of CVE-2018-10561 and CVE-2018-10562, two vulnerabilities that are specific to Gigabit Passive Optical Network (GPON)-based home routers.
Blockchain is one of the key concepts in IoT conversations today, touted to accelerate the scaling of IoT implementations. However, due to its nascent nature, what could be the potential risks, and how can blockchain play a role in IoT security?
IP surveillance cameras provide certain conveniences, but control of this can fall into the wrong hands. What threats are there for these devices and what can be done to minimize risk?
Security researchers discovered an RCE vulnerability in more than a million home fiber routers.
