Submission + - New Mirai Botnet Strain Has Gone Far Beyond Deutsche Telekom (csoonline.com)

itwbennett writes: On Monday, Deutsche Telekom reported that close to a million customers experienced internet connection problems from the new Mirai strain infecting their routers. Now security firm Flashpoint is saying the problem is more widespread and could affect up to 5 million internet routers and modems across the globe, including in the U.K., Brazil, Iran and Thailand. It’s still unclear how many devices have been infected, but Flashpoint estimates that as many as five million devices are vulnerable. 'If even a fraction of these vulnerable devices were compromised, they would add considerable power to an existing botnet,' Flashpoint said in a Tuesday blog post.
