Attack campaign compromises 300,000 home routers, alters DNS settings
In January, Team Cymru’s researchers identified two TP-Link wireless routers whose settings were altered to send DNS (Domain Name System) requests to two particular IP addresses: 22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199. An analysis of the rogue DNS servers running at those IP addresses revealed a mass-scale compromise of consumer networking devices.
Over a one-week period, more than 300,000 unique IP addresses sent DNS requests to the two servers, the Team Cymru researchers said in a report released Monday. Many of those IP addresses corresponded to a range of routers, including models from D-Link, Micronet, Tenda, TP-Link and other manufacturers, that had their DNS settings maliciously altered, they said.
