New breeds of malware specializing in wiping data are targeting internet of things (IoT) devices in homes and businesses.
According to Comodo Labs, hackers are seen to be adding data-wiping routines to some of the malware that are designed to infect IoT and embedded devices, including Amnesia and BrickerBot.
The aptly named Amnesia malware is a variation of Tsunami, an older IoT botnet client. Amnesia infects digital video recorders, exploiting a year-old vulnerability.
