Hackers of all kinds are attacking routers across the world

When hackers find a vulnerable router, they compromise it by installing malware that grants persistence, the ability to run distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks, hide malicious traffic, and more. But what happens when the hackers find a router that was already compromised by a rival gang?

Cybersecurity researchers from Trend Micro published a report that found that one of two things happen: either one group allows the other one to use the compromised infrastructure for a fee, or they each find a different way to break into the device and they use them simultaneously.
