Sierra Wireless Mirai Malware Information

Last week, ICS-CERT (United States Computer Emergency Response Team) warned about a new type of malware attack on cellular enabled gateways and routers from Sierra Wireless. This malware, nicknamed 'Mirai' can control devices when default passwords are not changed on Sierra Wireless devices that are accessible to the public internet. These reported infections succeed by connecting to ACEmanager, the Sierra web GUI for configuration, and use the default password.

The following devices are vulnerable to the Mirai malware.

LS300, GX400, GX/ES440, GX/ES450, and the RV50.

Sierra Wireless has confirmed the attacks and has posted a bulletin on its news site that provides more information and instructions on how to protect yourself from Mirai.

While many celllular enabled devics are not accessible on the public internet, those that are and are using default passwords should be the first that are updated. The good news is this malware resides in the devices memory, and therefore once the Sierra is rebooted, it will be wiped clean. Even if you have remote access to the device, remotely rebooting and changing the password will clear the infection.
