The explosion of Internet of Things (IoT) devices has long served as a breeding ground for malware distribution. The inability for users to patch many IoT devices has only compounded this problem, as bad actors continue to evolve tactics to leverage botnets for DDoS attacks and other malicious behavior. Black Lotus Labs tracks malware families that present new or distinct threats to the global community, and recently began tracking a new malware family called Mozi.
In this Tech Talk, you will learn how Lumen’s Black Lotus Labs finds, mitigates, and takes down botnets, and will hear about current security challenges with IoT and best practices for vendors in the IoT space.
