Sandworm APT Hunts for Asus Routers
Industry: N/A | Level: Strategic | Source: ThreatPost
Cyclops Blink, is a modular botnet linked to the same advanced persistence threat (APT) behind the NotPetya attacks, is expanding targeted devices to ASUS routers. Although the botnet has been around since 2019, it originally was targeting WatchGuard Firebox, and is advancing its goal for a more widescale infection. The purpose of the botnet is still unclear, but with more routers being compromised, the more powerful the data collection and allowing more avenues for further attacks.
