Security experts identify the "most advanced malware"

London _ Agencies

Security experts identified what they considered to be the "most advanced types of smart networks ever", which are believed to target smart home appliances.

The company  "Avast " anti-virus in a new report that they closely monitor a new breed of malware called  "Tori ", used  "Advanced techniques " to infect devices.

The experts said:  "This malware is trying to be more subtle and persistent after hacking the device, and it does not yet do the usual things that robots do (denial-of-service attacks, which are done by flooding sites with a torrent of data is not necessary), but they attack All devices connected to the Internet or of course, mining the encrypted currency  ".

Malicious software attacks devices that have weak encryption, using the remote access Protocol  "testnet".

 "Telnet" is defined as a remote access tool that is primarily used to log on to remote servers, but has been largely replaced with more secure tools.

Once the "Tori " determines a poorly-secured system, it will attempt to steal the personal information it contains, and the owners of the so-called "internet things" may not have any idea of hacking their devices.

Although  "Tori " did not try to freeze or execute attacks  "DDoS", researchers say that malware is able to fetch and execute orders of different types on the infected device which makes it extremely complicated.

What is more, many smart home tools are linked to each other, and it is not yet clear whether malware is capable of spreading from one device to another.

Experts  "Avast " explained that: "Tori is an example of the development of malicious software in the Internet of things, and that its complexity is higher than anything we have seen previously."
