Mirai Botnet Update 11-18-1

Did anyone see this? The headline containing "evolving" instantly makes me think of Skynet (from Terminator), Shodan (from System Shock), and whatever the heck the Matrix was about almost immediately.

It is interesting that the big Mirai botnet is splintering. I read an article last week that the minute a device is rebooted the Mirai "hack" is wiped, but it is instantly taken over by a new botnet. In a way the threat is shrinking each day.
