New Hacking Scheme Uses Routers to Spread Spywear

New Hacking Scheme Uses Routers to Spread Spywear

Researchers at security firm Kaspersky reported an apparently state-sponsored hacking program that uses routers as the entry point to deploy spywear deeper into a network. Unlike past attacks on routers, which came in the form of distributed-denial-of-service attacks or eavesdropping on the routers, the new method uses routers to infect other computers within a network with spywear.
