This hacker is my new hero
The hacker's name is Janit0r. You've probably never heard of him, but perhaps you've heard of his work. Janit0r is reportedly the one behind a particularly gnarly but undeniably fascinating form of malware called BrickerBot. BrickerBot, as the name implies, will brick internet of things devices that fail a simple security test. This surely is illegal, but I love it. News recently emerged that a third and fourth version of BrickerBot was spotted in the wild. These permanent-denial-of-service botnets are nasty, too. They scan the internet for IoT devices using default passwords and, eventually, wipe the device, corrupt its storage, and disconnect it from the internet.
