Millions of home Wi-Fi routers threatened by malware – what to do

There’s a nasty new piece of malware out there targeting Wi-Fi routers, and you’ll want to make sure yours is fully updated so it doesn’t get infected.

The AT&T researchers who discovered the malware are calling it BotenaGo, and it’s apparently different from the Mirai botnet malware that’s been attacking routers since 2016. BotenaGo packs in exploits for 33 different known vulnerabilities in 12 different router brands, including D-Link, Linksys, Netgear, Tenda, Totolink, Zyxel and ZTE. A full list is on the AT&T Cybersecurity blog post.
