Security Congress Abstract
In 2016 Mirai became the first well known IoT botnet and caused considerable collateral damage with massive DDOS attacks. A lot has happened since then. This presentation will look at the evolution of IoT botnets since Mirai, exposing the vulnerabilities that enable their creation, the race to exploit them and the new threats that IoT devices present to the internet. The presentation will provide details on specific IoT botnets, including details on the exploits and mechanisms used to create the botnet and the threat a particular botnet presents. It will show an evolving sophistication and increased variety in the threats that they present.
