Security researchers have discovered a flaw in the firmware of some Linksys routers that could allow a hacker to gain control remotely, possibly turning a group of infected routers into a botnet. The vulnerability has been exploited by malware dubbed TheMoon, according to a story at Computerworld, and the SANS Institute’s Internet Storm Center reports it has spotted Linksys E1000 and E1200 routers that were scanning the Net for other routers to infect.
