Linux and Raspberry Pi devices are proving a major security weak link
There are hundreds of thousands of Linux and Raspberry Pi devices connected to the internet right now, protected by nothing more than the default password, that are proving a major security weak link.
In possession of these default passwords, cybercriminals are using numerous automated bots to scan for vulnerable devices. Once they find them, planting malware becomes relatively easy.
These are the findings of a new threat report from Bulletproof, which claims “knockknockwhosthere”, “nproc”, “1”, “x”, “1234”, “123456”, “root”, and “raspberry” are among the most common default passwords out there.
