ZDNet broke a story today about the largest list of username/passwords for servers, home routers and  IOT devices, ever published. Technically this dump is not people who signed up to be drafted into combat but a DDOS-as-a-Service provider list of Telnet credentials for more that 515,000 devices is a pool of resources that any hacker COULD enlist into their botnet.

The irony of today’s release is that this list was provided by a DDOS booster as part of of a marketing campaign for their upgraded service; instead of working on top of IoT botnets they have “a new model that relies on renting high-output servers from cloud service providers.”
