The Federal Bureau of Investigation made a public service announcement recently about IoT end point security. The announcement addressed what key indicators users should be looking for, as well as how to avoid these security issues in the first place. The following article provides the details of the what and how.
The FBI is instructing users on how to recognize when their IoT devices have been compromised and advising them on how to keep them secure.
“Compromised devices may be difficult to detect but some potential indicators include: a major spike in monthly Internet usage; a larger than usual Internet bill; devices become slow or inoperable; unusual outgoing Domain Name Service queries and outgoing traffic; or home or business Internet connections running slow,” the Bureau shared in a public service announcement.
