A potent botnet is exploiting a critical router bug that may never be fixed

Ars Technica --------- A fast-moving botnet that turns routers, cameras, and other types of Internet-connected devices into potent tools for theft and destruction has resurfaced again, this time by exploiting a critical vulnerability that gives attackers control over as many as 40,000 routers.
