Have a Linksys router? Now's a good time to update that firmware
Owners and administrators of Linksys home routers are being advised to update and secure their devices following reports of active attacks on a flaw present in at least two models.
Researchers with the SANS Institutes Internet Storm Center have received reports of mass attacks on a remote access vulnerability in the Linksys E1000 and E1200. The reports, which were noted by an ISP administrator in Wyoming, claim that some customers running the Linksys routers have had their networks compromised.
According to the reports, the compromised routers scanned network traffic rapidly on port 80/8080, saturating available bandwidth, and in some cases their DNS settings were modified.
