A quick security story – a newly discovered botnet contains code that can wipe all data from infected systems, such as routers, servers, and IoT devices. Named HEH, it spreads via brute-force attacks against SSH ports.
This is a relatively new bot-net, and it is unknown if this wiping it intentional or just poorly coded. This is not the first bot-net that wipes IoT Devices.
Why do we care?
Yeah, that’s not at all scary. Just saying.
