…”When the Internet of Things (IoT) is weaponized to launch DDoS attacks, it’s called the DDoS of Things. The problem is that many consumer IoT devices can easily be hijacked and made part of such IoT botnets, which are then used to power bigger, smarter, and more devastating multi-vector DDoS attacks than ever before. We can clearly see that DDoS attacks have become more common, rising in direct proportion to the increase in the number of IoT devices.”
