The risk insecure broadband routers pose today - botnets.
« on: May 14, 2007, 09:14:12 PM »
Hi malware fighters.

It has not been widely discussed, because it has not been widely exploited, but there were two occasions where insecure broadband routers poses a threat (in Germany Deutsche Telekom) and not so long ago in the UK. It shows that most ISP's are still unaware of the implications of this problem. For a discussion go here: http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/fulldisc/full-disclosure/53576
