BrickerBot takes down IoT devices permenantly

I found this article over on Thought you would find it interesting.


While this is interesting and destructive at the same time, we are lucky that the Particle devices are embedded devices and wiping the firmware remotely isn’t that trivial. :slight_smile:

Another reason Linux is not quite ready to iot prime time.

I was thinking about that the other day.

If you are using a 3rd party SIM and the firmware corrupts or is maliciously damaged resulting in the APN settings being removed, how would one be able to re-flash the device remotely? :\
