I'm still not generallly aware of why the Ts need the I.

Quote:
The malware had bricked around 350 devices when this reporter began investigating its operations, and the number quickly spiked to 2,000 wiped devices by the time we published, an hour later.

Quote:
according to an interview with the malware's creator,
I thought 350 seemed like a low threshold for an investigation. I'm not claiming the author is at all directly involved, but that seems like beneficial timing.

Quote:
But unlike the Janit0r, Light did not offer any motive for his actions, as of now. He didn't put out a manifesto like the Janit0r did after BrickerBot attacks began, to justify any of his actions.
Attention, or they'd have remained anonymous.

Oh, and I missed the part having to do with "scary plans."

Botnets love them, but I don't know why any consumer uses them. I think it's just technophilia.

Also, from 2017 : University attacked by its own vending machines, smart light bulbs & 5,000 IoT devices

When you consider Internet to be an Inter Space Scan then bringing more Ts to the I means better resolution. The techno sphere is definitely bigger than in the 60ties. My concern is if the probe could not alter the test subject so massively that when they arrive they will find only a dead planet...

we have a roomba vacume bot at home. i a was against but my wife had to have one. i said please do not connect that to the wifi. she said she will not.

a week ago i just fired up aircrack-ng to check on that device and could see it connecting to my wifi. i confronted my wife with that and she said she connected it only once... that thing has lidar, speaker and a microphone. now they have a scan of my ding dong somewhere stored at the cloud.

we did take now the device offline but it was on radio for months...

also i did find out that the spybot was trying to connect to wifi even if "shutdown". the only thing you can do is to take out the battery. further i did try to sabotage the wifi by unplugging the antenna from the wifi card but i still could receive signal when scanning that with airodump. the card is hard soldered to the main board and i am not sure what would happen if i just would rip it out forcefully.

Block its MAC address. I don't think it's smart enough to do any sort of MAC spoofing.

yes yes. and then you can post on forums as first: "IT madman punished his wife for hooking up Roomba to Skynet!". It is not as simple as that. As in the common reality people hook up various devices to the net and it is called progressive...
