Kaji malware targets IoT devices using SSH brute-force attacks

Security researchers have discovered a new malware called Kaji which is targeting IoT devices using SSH brute-force attacks.

Malware is increasingly targeting IoT devices, and it's little surprise why. Statista estimates there are around 20 billion IoT devices installed today, while IDC predicts 41.6 billion devices generating 79.4 zettabytes of data by 2025.

Kaji was uncovered last week by security researcher MalwareMustDie and the experts at Intezer Labs.
