Motherboard: New Tool Automatically Finds and Hacks Vulnerable Internet-Connected Devices

Motherboard: New Tool Automatically Finds and Hacks Vulnerable Internet-Connected Devices. “Hacking isn’t always hard. Some lower-tier hackers use programs to automatically churn through breached login details to break into other accounts, and some penetration testing tools are designed to streamline processes so hackers can get to the more interesting stuff as quickly as possible. Enter AutoSploit, a program which takes that idea of efficient hacking, but severely ramps up the potential for damage by automating pretty much everything, including the process of finding a vulnerable target to attack.” Hoo boy.
