Botnet is exploiting a critical vulnerability in network-attached storage (NAS) devices

Cyber Security Breach Hacking Laptop

A new botnet called ‚Mukashi‚ employs brute-force attacks using different combinations of default credentials. 

It aims to log into Zyxel NAS, UTM, ATP, and VPN firewall products to take control of the devices. Once this happened, it adds them to a network of infected bots that can be used to carry out Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks.

Mukashi works by scanning the Internet for vulnerable Internet of Things (IoT) devices like routers, NAS devices, and security cameras.
