A new botnet is launching attacks on millions of routers and IoT devices

Cybersecurity researchers have shared insight into a new malware that employs over thirty exploits and can potentially tie millions of routers, modems, network-attached storage (NAS), and Internet of Things (IoT) devices into a botnet.

Discovered by AT&T’s Alien Labs, the new malware, dubbed BotenaGo, is written in the open source Go programming language, which has become popular with malware authors of late, thanks to Its ability to code payloads that are harder to detect and reverse engineer, according to BleepingComputer.
