Hackers have Hacked 300000 Wireless Routers Worldwide

Hackers have Hacked 300000 Wireless Routers Worldwide. American security firm Team Cymru have uncovered yet another mass compromise of home and small-office wireless routers. Bellow a snippet from Team Cymru report:

“In January 2014, Team Cymru’s Enterprise Intelligence Services began investigating
a SOHO pharming campaign that had overwritten router DNS settings in central
Europe. To date, we have identiCied over 300,000 devices, predominantly in Europe
and Asia, which we believe have been compromised as part of this campaign, one
which dates back to at least mid-December of 2013.
Affected devices had their DNS settings changed to use the IP addresses 5.45.75.11
and 5.45.75.36. Our analysis indicated that a large majority of affected routers
resided in Vietnam. Other top countries affected included India, Italy and Thailand. “
