New Botnet posing threat to internet devices

A one year old Botnet starts shaking the cyberworld forcing the security experts to counter the deepening threat these days.

Popularly known as Hide-N-Seek, the Botnet is being deployed by the attackers to target the internet of things computing devices within a short spell of time.

 Within less than a year since the experts identified it,HNS was said to have infected many internet of things devices leaving the users in huge confusion.

 Apart from it, the attackers, in all probability, might put in place the Botnet– targetting the database of cross-platform solutions much to the worry of millions of internet users.

 The joint team of experts from two top most cyber security firms, who are doing an extensive study have observed that the hide-n-seek Botnet, now in place to exploit the data base system, has expanded its area of network to infect more devices bypassing the routers scope.

 The researchers who were picked up from Oihoo 360 and Netlab for the research have said the hide-n-seek Botnet is being deployed to exploit new CISCO Linksys Router RCE JAW/1.0 RCE, OrientDB RCE, TP-Link-Routers RCE Netgear RCE and AVTECH RCE.

 They say the Botnet in question has huge processing power in view of the capacity to scan some vital exploitation.

These might include 23 Telnet,8080http web services,80 HTTP Web Service5984, CouchDB 2480 OrientDB and 5984 CouchDB. HNS always keeps supporting 7 exploiting methods and it adds a cpuminer mining program where the functionings are quite improper.

 The researchers have found it very easy to identify the Hide-N-seek Botnet which, like others keep infecting the popular servers known as OrientDB.

 To name some of the infected services are JAWS/1.0 web server, Apache CouchDB, OrientDB, AVTECH devices (webcam, webcam), CISCO Linksys router.

The experts have categorically stressed more research to weed out the threat in store.
