Brannon Dorsey an artist and programmer together play both the roles wonderfully was talking about retro Web attack named as DNS rebinding, and teaching others how to eradicate extreme exploitation to the data from an unknown weak browser. Researchers have been working on this but it’s very shocking what Dorsey has found.
Dorsey sitting in his apartment tried to hack his own devices, instead of getting block by every mean he found that devices and smart home gadgets he was using all were unprotected and got attacked by DNS rebinding. The information he gathered was unexpected.
Dorsey borrowed some gadgets from his friends and used it against his own gadgets he found the DNS rebinding between his these gadgets. Dorsey’s experience was published on Tuesday, he did not get the full information but manage to gather more control over data terrarium tv app read more.
Devices running Roku OS 8.0 Dorsey was able to find attackers can use External Control API to control buttons and keys in devices. The attacker could find out information of Sonos WiFi speakers network, that are utilized for mapping network attributes and broader recon. Attackers are also using Google Home and Google Chrome cast to get the information about the WiFi network through which they are trying to connect, WiFi networks are totally geolocation the device.
DNS rebinding attacker can centralize the weakness of browser by implanting Web protocols. An attacker can use medium like phishing or malvertising to fool victims by making them click on their websites and getting the control over data that are exposed to their network. Just by one unknown click or tap and your smart devices are corrupted by the attacker.
“This problem is showing the basic features of internet since it’s been made” said Joseph Pantoga the research scientist at Internet of Things which is security firm Red Balloons, he also added “DNS rebinding attackers have been noticed many times before but we have come up with some newly developed features in IoT devices like geolocation and collecting personal data are making people more aware of the company that has the feature of smoothing personal data.”
Dorsey said, ” I think my research will help to identify the DNS rebinding attacks in the future easily and will be able to prevent your per data from it and protect your vulnerable devices to keep it safe.”
