BrickerBot is malware that targets some devices that are connected to the public internet. When this malware attacks a susceptible device, it is “bricked,” causing the storage capabilities to be corrupted. In many cases the device can no longer be used.
HydroPoint’s WeatherTRAK controllers are not susceptible to BrickerBot. WeatherTRAK controllers do not use the public Internet. They use a private dedicated network and proprietary protocols that are not susceptible to this type of attack.
You can operate your HydroPoint controllers with confidence knowing that they are safe from BrickerBot malware.
