OpenSprinkler Forums OpenSprinkler Unified Firmware Is OpenSprinkler too dumb? Reply To: Is OpenSprinkler too dumb?



It’s very unlikely that your OpenSprinkler is infected: the IoT devices that are infected are generally based on some kind of real-time operating system, and these attacks leverage security holes in the real-time operating systems. OpenSprinkler is based on a microcontroller and does not use any real-time operating system. Its firmware can only be changed through USB, so there is no way for these attacks to modify its firmware and become bots.
