Regardless of whether your device is listed above, if you own a wired or wireless router, IP camera or other device that has a Web interface and you haven’t yet changed the factory default credentials, your system may already be part of an Io T botnet.
Unfortunately, there is no simple way to tell one way or the other whether it has been compromised.
“Even when users are interested in and looking for this information, the vendor doesn’t always make it easy,” Dormann said.
Dormann said instead of hard-coding credentials or setting default usernames and passwords that many users will never change, hardware makers should require users to pick a strong password when setting up the device.
If you’re unsure how to reach the administration panel, a quick search online for the make and model of your device should reveal an address and default credential pair that can be typed or pasted into a Web browser.
If possible, reset the device to the factory-default settings.
Devices that don’t have updates at all are completely worthless.
Only changing the default password protects them from rapidly being reinfected on reboot.
As Krebs On Security observed over the weekend, the source code that powers the “Internet of Things” (Io T) botnet responsible for launching the historically large distributed denial-of-service (DDo S) attack against Krebs On Security last month has been publicly released.
Here’s a look at which devices are being targeted by this malware.
This should ensure that if any malware has been uploaded to the device that it will be wiped permanently.
Most devices have a small, recessed button that needs to be pressed and held down for a several seconds while powered on to reset the thing back to the factory default settings.
