Hackers are Hijacking Vulnerable Smart Building Access Systems to Launch
DDoS Attacks
(February 2 & 3, 2020)

Attackers are hijacking vulnerable smart building access systems and using
them to launch distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks. There has
been increased scanning for Nortek Security & Control (NSC) Linear eMerge
E3 systems that are vulnerable to a known critical command injection flaw.

Editor's Note

Back in late 2013, SANS held an Internet of Things Security Summit where
we pointed out smart building systems as the most likely future attack
path for real business damage, vs. other attacks. The growth of commercial
real estate being developed with wired and wireless networks built in, and
with elevator, HVAC systems on the network with remote access to all those
systems means many companies are putting their internal systems onto
building networks that are being run quite often at very low levels of
security hygiene.
