    When news of the Shellshock vulnerability broke out at the end of September, we spotted several attacks that leveraged the said vulnerability, thus manifesting the prevalence or even evolution on how attackers used the exploit. For instance, attackers used Shellshock to target SMTP servers, launch botnet attacks, and even to download KAITEN source code among others. We have continuously monitored this vulnerability and on our latest research, we observed that recent samples of BASHLITE (detected by Trend Micro as ELF_BASHLITE.SMB) scans the network for devices/machines ...

    I prefer using the phrase "Internet of Everything" when discussing what most people call the Internet of Things because in many ways, the latter term isn't enough. What makes the Internet of Everything so powerful is the data about you and me that these devices can gather. Consider how these devices actually work.
