Too Long; Didn't Read

Jackware is a special type of malware made especially for commandeering machines. The purpose of jackware is to remotely and hostilely take over “embedded” devices connected to the internet, including cars, robots, IoT gadgets and more. Detection and defense is difficult, often due to a "design gap" between the cybersecurity capabilities of equipment when it was made versus when it is used. Ultimately, strong preventative measures are the best defense.
