India Must Be Prepared for HNS Botnet Attack

India Must Be Prepared for HNS Botnet Attack, botnet now controls 32,312 Internet of Things(IoT) devices globally and seems to undergo massive development as new samples compiled for a variety of architectures have been added as payloads The HNS botnet communicates in a complex and decentralized manner and uses multiple anti-tampering techniques to prevent a third party from hijacking/poisoning it. The bot can perform web exploitation against a series of devices,” Bitdefender researchers wrote in a blog post. Once a device is infected, hackers behind the botnet can use commands to control it.

With a simple device reboot, the malware can be automatically removed from the compromised device.
