A botnet that wipes everything

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.
