TNS Issues a Sample IoT Security Report Showing Backdoors in a Connected Device
IoT Firmware Exploitation Training | June 12-16 | Columbia, MD, USA > https://www.tacnetsol.com/collections/live-training/products/iot-firmware-exploitation?variant=29763693581
From the TNS Mailbag: "What types of embedded firmware images does Centrifuge evaluate?"
Clients are excited to leverage the TNS automated firmware evaluations (and consulting) performed with the proprietary Centrifuge IoT Security Platform. The evaluations are completed with NO access to source code on embedded firmware images containing Linux-based root filesystems compiled for either MIPS, ARM, or X86. We also support QNX (a real-time operating system) and Docker containers.TNS evaluations have revealed thousands of hidden attack vectors including erroneously placed private crypt ...
Hackers Scheme to Weaponize Insecure Connected Medical Devices and What You Can Do About It
But nobody’s died yet...So often, we hear, “What’s the panic about securing connected medical devices? Nobody’s died yet and nobody can prove that insecure connected medical devices were vectors in an attacker’s botnet yet.”The operative word is “yet,” as hackers are scheming to weaponize connected medical devices. You might have read how life-saving connected insulin pumps can be turned into lethal devices. We’ve read about devices like benign ultrasound machines that could be ...
11 Uncommon Hackable Medical Devices Posing Real Threats
Within the last year, you've likely read a few posts about hackable pacemakers and insulin pumps detailing scary and real threats to common medical devices. In addition to the known hackable IoT medical devices, there are many not-so-common devices that pose legitimate threats when (not if) hacked. In all corners of the world, they sit silently poised as potential vectors for botnet or ransomware attacks.According to the "Healthcare's IoT Dilemma: Connected Medical Devices" report by Forrester, ...

The 5 Worst IoT Hacks and Vulnerabilities in Recorded History
IoT hacks are unbelievably effective. By leveraging thousands (if not millions) of insecure connected devices, hackers can produce DDoS attacks that can cripple our infrastructure, systems, and way of life. Or, attackers can go straight for the kill by directly exploiting a device and using it as a gateway to deeper levels on a network where they gather sensitive and valuable private data.And things are about to get worse. Forbes predicts that by 2025, we’ll have over 80 billion smart devices ...
