The Mirai botnet was one of a kind: tying up connected ‘IoT’ devices into a botnet that was used to take down a service provider to some major websites. The facts about this are well known, the tactic of using IoT devices in a botnet to launch a DDoS attack produced some of the strongest attacks ever recorded.

In this webinar, we will look at the increase in size of DDoS attacks using consumer devices, how you can avoid getting tied up in a botnet and how to know whether your device is vulnerable to ‘enslavement’ in a botnet.

In this webinar we will:

  • Look at what happened in the case of Mirai, and how the IoT became poisoned
  • Consider how DDoS attacks were able to take place because of unchanged user credentials
  • Learn how to remove yourself from a botnet
  • Discuss learnings about the power of connected devices
