#507 Meet Remaiten – a Linux bot on steroids targeting routers and potentially other IoT devices
ESET researchers are actively monitoring malware that targets embedded systems such as routers, gateways and wireless access points. Recently, we discovered a bot that combines the capabilities of Tsunami (also known as Kaiten) and Gafgyt. It also provides some improvements as well as a couple of new features. We call this new threat Linux/Remaiten. So far, we have seen three versions of Linux/Remaiten that identify themselves as versions 2.0, 2.1 and 2.2. Based on artifacts found in the code, the authors call this new malware “KTN-Remastered” or “KTN-RM”.
