IoT malware refers to malicious software or code that is specifically designed to target Internet of Things (IoT) devices, such as smart home devices or industrial control systems.
IoT malware is a type of malicious software or code that targets Internet of Things (IoT) devices, which are increasingly common in homes, businesses, and industrial settings. IoT malware can take various forms, such as viruses, worms, or trojans, and can cause a range of harmful effects, such as stealing sensitive data, disrupting device functions, or even causing physical harm.As the number of connected devices grows, so does the risk of IoT malware attacks. To protect against such threats, specialized security controls and technologies are needed, such as firewalls, intrusion detection systems, and antivirus software. Additionally, best practices for IoT security, such as regular software updates, strong passwords, and network segmentation, can also help prevent and mitigate the effects of IoT malware.
