Walmart-exclusive router and others sold on Amazon & eBay contain hidden backdoors to control devices : worldnews
This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 96%. (I’m a bot)
In a collaboration between CyberNews Sr. Information Security Researcher Mantas Sasnauskas and researchers James Clee and Roni Carta, suspicious backdoors have been discovered in a Chinese-made Jetstream router, sold exclusively at Walmart as their new line of “Affordable” wifi routers.
Besides the Walmart-exclusive Jetstream router, the cybersecurity research team also discovered that low-cost Wavlink routers, normally sold on Amazon or eBay, have similar backdoors.
This is also a very threatening possibility: given the Jetstream/Wavlink router backdoors here, an attacker can take control of not only the router, but also all the devices connected to that network.
