Mirai Botnet Upgraded

Recently published research shows that the infamous Mirai botnet has been upgraded to attack to new classes of Internet of Things (IoT) devices, those been smart signage TVs and wireless presentation systems. This at first glance does not appear to be a major revelation, what is worrying is how the authors of Mirai appear to have spent a lot of time and effort into these upgrades.

This app is presented as a tool for tracking packages directly from peoples browsers. It might look like a useful tool, however, usually people install apps of this type unwillingly/unintentionally. Another problem is that, once installed, browser hijackers change browser's settings and gather data about their users. Typically, these apps are capable of hijacking browsers like Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Internet Explorer. When installed, Fast Package Tracker appoints search.fastpackagetracker.co as a homepage, default search engi...
