IoT Reaper is a type of malware, specifically designed to exploit and damage computer systems or devices. Originating from the source code of several known malware families such as Gafgyt, Mirai, and Mozi, it primarily targets Internet of Things (IoT) devices. IoT Reaper infiltrates systems through suspicious downloads, emails, or websites, often unbeknownst to the user. Once inside, it can steal personal information, disrupt operations, or even hold data hostage for ransom. The IoT Reaper malware has been linked to the creation of the Mozi IoT botnet, a peer-to-peer (P2P) network of compromised devices that can launch distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks, exfiltrate data, and execute payloads. The botnet's source code includes elements from other botnet families, including Gafgyt, Mirai, and IoT Reaper itself, demonstrating its evolution and adaptation from previous threats. The infection process of the IoT Reaper malware involves using network gateways as an inroad for more powerful compromises. This method allows it to infect a wide range of IoT devices, expanding its reach and potential damage. Given its roots in other IoT-based botnets like Mirai, Gafgyt, and Mozi, IoT Reaper poses a significant threat to unprotected IoT networks and emphasizes the need for robust cybersecurity measures.
