‘IOTROOP’ BOTNET COULD DWARF MIRAI IN SIZE AND DEVASTATION

A botnet, which is adding new bots every day, has already infected one million businesses during the past month and could easily eclipse the size and devastation caused by Mirai.
The malware and botnet, dubbed IOTroop, was spotted in September by researchers at Check Point who warn that 60 percent of corporate networks have at least one vulnerable device.
Similar to Mirai, the malware targets poorly protected network-connected devices such as routers and wireless IP cameras manufactured by D-Link, TP-Link, Avtech, Netgear, MikroTik, Linksys, Synology and GoAhead.
