Overview

The recent large-scale DDoS attacks attributed to the Mirai botnet illustrate how relatively small and low power devices like security camera DVRs can be used to launch crippling attacks. The large numbers of these devices and the ease with which they can be exploited makes up for the low computational power of individual devices. Mirai is an example of a botnet that was specifically created to take advantage of these devices. But it is far from the only threat these devices are facing. We will talk about the Mirai botnet, and how to detect and secure vulnerable devices. You will also learn what type of attacks to expect from these compromised devices and how to defend against them.
