China Hacks Residential German Routers

Short Takes | 0 comments

Risky Business News has an article reporting a warning from Germany that China is hacking home routers and storage devices.

The devices aren’t hacked for their own intrinsic worth (although that should be a concern), instead they are used so the Chinese can launch attacks from the home routers to hide the true origin of the attack.

P.S. This is why cybersecurity experts are big on NOT using home routers for business. They are notoriously easy to hack and never get the security updates that they need.
