Subject description: A massive Botnet is forming to create a cyber-storm that could take down the internet.

New cyber-storm clouds are gathering. Check Point Researchers have discovered a brand new Botnet, dubbed ‘IoTroop’, evolving and recruiting IoT devices at a far greater pace and with more potential damage than the Mirai botnet of 2016.

They have been behind some of the most damaging cyberattacks against organizations worldwide, including hospitals, national transport links, communication companies and political movements.
