The IoTReaper, a.k.a. IoTroop, botnet was discovered in 2017, and remains a significant threat to the cyber domain. Check Point Research completed a thorough investigation of the malware when it was discovered in 2017, but researchers have still seen no sign that the botnet has been activated to conduct a significant DDoS attack, similar to that seen against Dyn in 2016.
