Although it’s the least visible piece of office equipment, wireless internet routers are increasingly being targeted by cybercriminals.

The Mirai malware botnet variant known as ‘MooBot’ has re-emerged in a new attack wave, targeting vulnerable routers made by D-Link.

Users of compromised D-Link routers might notice a slowdown in internet speeds, unresponsiveness, overheating, or unusual setting changes.

Work with your IT security team and internet network providers to update your router to the latest firmware.

If you’ve already been compromised, get in touch with your IT team and ISP immediately. Don’t forget to install all the latest updates across your routers and internet-connected devices.
