ICS Threat Broadens: Nation-State Hackers Are No Longer The Only Game In Town

APT actors and nation states aren't the only adversaries interested in ICS environments. Threat actors who use sophisticated techniques but are also amateurish are now targeting utility providers. That's according to the data from a honeypot Cybereason setup to emulate the power transmission substation of a major electricity provider.

Hajime variant messes with iptables

The Hajime embedded devices worm was first written about in October. Researchers at Rapidity Networks setup honeypots hoping to capture a Mirai sample. Instead, they discovered an embedded devices worm that behaves like the Mirai but has no connection to the malware that turns IP cameras, printers and other devices running Linux into bots that can be used on large DDoS attacks.

Cybereason's researchers look at 2017's top threats

This past year we saw what happens when IoT device security is an afterthought and attackers discover that ransomware is an easy and quick way to make a profit. With attackers always ahead of the defenders, no one can predict with certainty what information security threats companies will face in 2017.

Zero-day exploits could turn hundreds of thousands of IP cameras into IoT botnet slaves

The information security community tends to look down on Internet of Things research and dismiss it as junk hacking. While the recent Mirai botnet attacks have raised the profile of embedded security, owning a “smart “ device still isn’t as sexy as owning a MacBook Air.
