The Internet-connected devices are growing at an exponential rate, and so are threats to them. Due to the insecure implementation, a majority of Internet-connected embedded devices, including Smart TVs, Refrigerators, Microwaves, Security Cameras, and printers, are routinely being hacked and used as weapons in cyber attacks.
A team of researchers at Kaspersky Labs have recently cracked the mystery of a fileless malware that was used to hack bank ATMs in Russia and steal $800,000 in a single night. It was possible because of the two log files unintentionally left on the machine by the attackers. The researchers were able to reverse engineer the attack.
