We have previously highlighted the importance of properly securing devices that are connected to the internet.
As routers are required to access the internet, you will all relate to this one. And if you think this is a hard attack to set up, please reconsider while reading about this “Botnet-as-a-Service” offering in the black market.
As I am writing this, I have fresh in my mind that I have a Zyxel router myself back home, which is described as one of the vulnerable routers to this attack.
We have said this before, by scaling up the authentication security on your (IoT) devices, the issues described will be mitigated. The world would be a better place.
Please have a look at our Solutions Page(link) for more information.
