Strangely, this seems to be getting very little attention.

this is concerning, but out of fear that i will never have internet again, i don't want to tamper with my router.
someone told me that i can make ice cubes with left over wine.
i am confused, what is left over wine?

The problem is there's no patch or update that protects against it. The answer is a new router!

I suspect that most (all?) infections happen because people leave the remote admin on, and configuration login and password as factory defaults.

For sure its defaults being left.

I can see two networks in my estate that you can log into the router just with a default admin/admin lol

Im running Ubiquti routers. should be good.
