Project Description

Sometimes "smart" devices we bring into our homes aren't as smart as we'd hope. Remember Fall 2016, when a huge DDoS attack took down many huge sites like Netflix and Amazon? That's the power of a malevolent botnet.

Insecure "smart" devices play an ever-increasing role in DDoS attacks, so in April 2017, an antimalware-botnet calling itself Brickerbot started pre-emptively bricking insecure IoT devices to prevent this kind of thing from happening.
