Team82 has revamped its biannual report to embrace an understanding of the vulnerabilities being disclosed and fixed within the Extended Internet of Things (XIoT). XIoT is the umbrella term for connected cyber-physical devices within industrial, healthcare, and commercial enterprise IoT environments.
XIoT Vulnerabilities Breakdown
While published operational technology vulnerabilities dominate Team82’s dataset for the 1H 2022, it’s important to note that the percentage of IoT vulnerabilities has almost doubled since our last report, especially impacting connected smart devices, routers and other networking gear, and cameras—all of which if compromised may afford an attacker deeper access to the enterprise network.
Criticality and Impact
The vast majority of published XIoT vulnerabilities in the 1H 2022 were either critical or high severity.
