Internal Scan

Scans your internal network and find IoT devices that may have vulnerabilities. This scan should discover devices that can be compromised by the Mirai virus (or maybe already compromised devices).

If you see devices in the problem section,  we strongly recommend you to upgrade that device software.  If you see default password being detected, we also recommend you to change them.

If your scan is clean, we do recommend you to come back often, especially when you are adding new gadgets to the home.

How does firewalla scan: 

“A vaccine is a biological preparation that provides active acquired immunity to a particular disease. A vaccine typically contains an agent that resembles a disease-causing microorganism and is often made from weakened or killed forms of the microbe” (Wikipedia)

The Firewalla app does exactly what a vaccine would do to a real person.  To implement the internal scans,  our engineers took a live virus, cut it in pieces,  made sure the part active is harmless,  and finally added our sauce to make it harmless.    By doing so, we simply made the virus tell us which of your devices are hacked or can be easily hacked.

A typical virus have a few stages

  1. Dormant
  2. Propagation / infection
  3. Activation
  4. Attack

What we have done is delete the code for activation and attack.   And remove the infection part from (2).
