News: New HinataBot Exploiting Router and Server Flaws for DDoS Attacks
The stakes just got higher with the arrival of Hinatabot, the latest creation from ex-Mirai hackers. This powerful botnet promises to cause more destruction with far less effort from its operators.
Since near the beginning of this year, HinataBot has been spreading by exploiting exposed Hadoop YARN servers and security flaws in Realtek SDK devices and Huawei HG532 routers.
But SAM’s got your back! Our DPI engine is already fully equipped to handle these vulnerabilities, and our team is constantly vigilant to stay ahead of this ongoing threat and ensure your safety.

In the ever-evolving world of network management and the threat landscape, AI and deep network visibility have become increasingly important aspects for business growth. For those who may have missed it, we wanted to highlight one of our most informative podcast episodes on this timely topic.

News: 5G FWA Set to Rival Wired Broadband
Fiber may be great, but let’s face it – it’s not always available or affordable in every area. Luckily, 5G FWA is a promising alternative!
Juniper and ABI research predict that 5G FWA will generate tens of billions of dollars in revenue for operators worldwide by 2027! However, to succeed, these operators must also offer a compelling user proposition that goes beyond the typical “speeds and feeds.” As suggested by their research, bundling value-added services like smart home security can give them a competitive edge!
But how can ISPs successfully upsell home users who may not fully appreciate the risks associated with IoT devices and cyber attacks?
Event: Sharing Knowledge & Hope With Huntington’s Disease Patients
We recently had the honor of hosting the Huntington’s Disease Association for a support group gathering at our HQ offices. The event was focused on providing information on legal tools to cope with changing life situations to both patients and their families. We heard from some incredible speakers, including Adv. Shavit Ben-Hurin on the topic of advanced legal planning, as well as Attorneys Rachel Ohana and Dana Breckfeld on the topic of guardianship.
It was a very empowering afternoon, and in the end, we all came out more knowledgeable and hopeful about how to prepare for the future. Thank you to the Huntington’s Disease Association for choosing us to host such an important event!
