Is Your ADSL Modem Part of a Botnet?

A very interesting pdf file on a malware infecting ADSL modems, the study is about Netcomm devices, however there are some other (unnamed) vendors vulnerable the same way.

The modems are running MIPS processors and embedded linux.

in Another blog, a newer version of the malware is found, and it seems that there is an ongoing development in this area, so stay tuned !

The study showed that some ADSL modems from USA, Egypt, Malaysia, and other countries are already infected and spreading the bot.
