D-Link routers hacked?
July 2018 by eSentire
Cyber security company eSentire has identified a new, coordinated weaponization campaign targeting D-Link routers.
The company just detected a coordinated botnet recruitment campaign being launched. eSentire saw a surge of exploit attempts from over 3,000 different source IPs, introducing a variation of the OS Command Injection attack against the 2750B D-Link router. While none of these exploits appeared to be successful in corporate environments (which lack consumer-grade routers), there was likely some degree of success with casual home networks.
This piggybacks on eSentire’s 2018 Q1 Threat Report findings from last month, which noted a dramatic increase (539%) in attacks targeting popular consumer-grade routers (like Netgear and Linksys) from Q4 2017 to Q1 2018.
