Who Is Scanning for CVE-2023-1389? Back in April, when we first started tracking CVE-2023-1389, we did an analysis of who was scanning for it, and found that the majority of scanning activity was coming from just two ASNs, AS49870 (Alsycon, a hosting provider out of the Netherlands) and AS47890 (Unmanaged Ltd). Running these analyses again,…

Executive Summary The Internet of Things (IoT) and, specifically, the hunt for exploitable IoT devices by attackers, has been a primary area of research for F5 Labs for over a year now—and with good reason. IoT devices are becoming the “cyberweapon delivery system of choice” by today’s botnet-building attackers. And, why not? There are literally…
