News Raspberry Pi Malware Infects Using Default Username and Password


This piece is an important reminder! No device is too insignificant to be used as an attack vector or in a bot net. If it has a network stack, it should be considered a target.

The practice of having default user accounts and passwords is way beyond obsolete. Upon installation, I change not only the password of my pi user account, but also the username.

More importantly, if you have a wifi router, definitely change any default password on it.
