- Mirai IoT DDoS Trojan Now Targets Cellular Network Equipment. From Softpedia.
Sierra Wireless, one of the biggest hardware manufacturers of mobile equipment, has issued an alert yesterday, warning customers not to use default passwords with their devices as they might be at risk of infection from the infamous Mirai malware.
The company says that Airlink wireless routers and gateways deployed with 3G and 4G LTE cellular networks are at risk.
Sierra says that network operators that use these devices across their infrastructure, and are using them with their default credentials are at risk of having the devices taken over and employed in DDoS attacks.
