New DDoS Botnet Targets ARC-Based IoT Devices

Following the news of  Mirai Okiru: the new DDoS botnet that’s targeting ARC-based IoT devices. Mike Schuricht, VP of Products at Bitglass commented below.

Mike Schuricht, VP of Products at Bitglass:

“This new botnet, as with the recent Spectre bug, demonstrates the challenges with securing low-level hardware and the threat posed by uncontrolled endpoints. Where endpoints are vulnerable, sensitive corporate data is also at risk. Organizations can do little to prevent these attacks, but can take steps to encrypt, track, and protect data when it flows to any endpoint, managed or unmanaged.”
