Dumbots: Unexpected Botnets through Networked Embedded Devices
Kwang-Hyun Baek, Sergey Bratus, Sara Sinclair, Sean W. Smith
Dartmouth TR2007-591

Abstract: Currently, work on botnets focuses primarily on PCs. However, as lightweight computing devices with embedded operating systems become more ubiquitous, they present a new and very disturbing target for botnet developers. In this paper, we present both an empirical demonstration on a widely deployed multimedia box, as well as an evaluation of the deeper potential of these dumbots.
