6413 - The Battle Among IoT-Based Bots

Wednesday, September 27
2:15 PM - 3:15 PM

2017 may already be defined as the year of IoT threats. Spawned from last year's Mirai botnet, the IoT threat landscape has become so vast that vigilante hackers are now purposefully destroying vulnerable devices just to combat the threat. In this session, Ron Winward will review the Mirai framework and specifically how it has created this new threat landscape. Also, he’ll discuss other infamous malware attacks such as the Hajime botnet and BrickerBot, and how darknet forums and marketplaces are fueling the threat. Finally, Winward will explore how to protect yourself from IoT-based attacks and ways to secure your own IoT infrastructure.
