Spamalot? Hacker Attacks 100K Routers To Send Email Spam

A five-year-old vulnerability has let a hacker affect approximately 100,000 home routers.

Digital Trends reports a botnet was initially discovered in September, by researchers from a Chinese internet security company.

It's likely the hacker is leveraging this network of compromised routers to send spam emails.

The vulnerability allows attackers to conduct remote attacks and execute malicious code, without any authentication.
