Axenic Charity Support – Karunai Illam Trust

At Axenic we are proud to have been able to support and donate to the Karunai Illam Trust for several years now. Axenic’s association originally started with Axenic staff Jim Shaw and Jo Coffey supporting the children’s home in India with both time and money.  Over the years Axenic’s support has included a photographic exhibition at The Mahara Gallery in Waikanae and the “cleaning” and donation of much-needed laptops to the Trust.  Our most recent support has gone towards furnishing the boys’ hostel within the new Illam complex where the children live outside the school day.

The bot, which is believed to be active since the 20th of March 2017, exploits hard-coded passwords of devices with published SSH or telnet, as well as attempting to brute-force passwords of devices with non-default credentials. As the name suggest, BrickerBot bricks the devices and leaves them completely useless. This is done by executing a set of commands to delete storage, corrupt routing and others.
