BotenaGo, nouveau malware ciblant des millions de routeurs et d'appareils IoT

AT&T Alien Labs discovered new malware written in the Golang open source programming language, using “ more than 30 exploits ” and potentially “ targeting millions of routers and IoT devices “.

The malware creates a backdoor and waits to receive a target to attack from a remote operator via the port 19412 or another associated module running on the same machine.

Before the article was published, BotenaGo was only detected by 6 of the 30 known antiviruses listed by VirusTotal. AT&T Alien Labs estimates that the malware would be “ still in beta ” and that it would have been “ accidentally disclosed ”.
