Linksys Malware ‘The Moon’ Spreading from Router to Router – The Hacker News

Which Wireless Router do you have at your Home or Office? If it’s a Linksys Router you could be in the danger to a new malware that attacks your firmware and replicates itself.

Security researcher Johannes B. Ullrich from the SANS Technology Institute has warned about a self-replicating malware which is exploiting authentication bypass and code-execution vulnerabilities in the Linksys wireless routers.

The Malware named as ‘THE MOON’, scans for other vulnerable devices to spread from router to router and Johannes confirmed that the malicious worm has already infected around 1,000 Linksys E1000, E1200, and E2400 routers.
