Hacker exploits router zero-day vulnerability in efforts to build Mirai-like botnet

“Hackers are attacking hundreds of thousands of Huawei routers with variants of Mirai malware in a bid to build a massive botnet like arsenal used in global cyberattacks in 2016, according to the Israeli cybersecurity firm Check Point.

A zero-day vulnerability in the Huawei home router HG532 is being exploited to deliver a payload called Satori (or Okiru) by an amateur identified as ‘Nexus Zeta,’ Check Point says.”
