Time to start locking down IoT, BrickerBot bricking IoT devices

OK so if you have an IoT device that for some god forsaken reason has “telnet” running.  This worm will get into it and brick the device (it sounds like it corrupts the filesystem and then its toast).  Not sure if a firmware reload will fix it either.  Pretty scary stuff.

BrickerBot is a vigilante worm that destroys insecure IoT devices
