Torii malware could be gateway to more sophisticated IoT botnet attacks

“IoT devices have proven to be vulnerable and, in many cases, are not upgradeable or patchable to mitigate the security risks they pose. As long as there are millions of these devices without strong security protections in place, there will continue to be many versions of Mirai and Torii-like botnets, as the primary ingredient to build them is still prevalent,” said Soto. “To solve this, a serious approach of decommissioning and hardening these devices before they go into production must be done.”
