We are happy to announce the release of the PlugBot project this weekend at HackMiami 2015!

PlugBot project is a security research project by RedTeam Security, led by Jeremiah Talamantes. It is designed to be a proof-of-concept / experimental foray into the development of software that could potentially support the concept of a hardware botnet.

The PlugBot project is made up of two components, PlugBot Bot and PlugBot Command & Control.

Command & Control

Bot

The hardware component to this project is intended to be single-board computers, such as: Raspberry Pi, Beaglebone, Cubox, etc.

Jeremiah began developing the concept in February 2010 right around the initial surge of plug computers into the tech market. Although the development ceased not soon after, the research aspect continued into his dissertation and finally came to life again in early 2015.

The code will become publicly available and under open source licensing. Please sign up for our Labs newsletter for notifications.
