Router-Hacking “Slingshot” Spy Operation Compromised More Than 100 Targets

“ROUTERS, BOTH THE big corporate kind and the small one gathering dust in the corner of your home, have long made an attractive target for hackers. They’re always on and connected, often full of unpatched security vulnerabilities, and offer a convenient chokepoint for eavesdropping on all the data you pipe out to the internet. Now security researchers have found a broad, apparently state-sponsored hacking operation that goes a step further, using hacked routers as a foothold to drop highly sophisticated spyware even deeper inside a network, onto the computers that connect to those compromised internet access points.”
