  • Actually, this is not new. Viruses embedded in hardware firmwares is old news. This is most common in routers. Almost every router has a neat functionality where it will let your ISP to automatically update your router firmware in case your ISP makes any drastic changes from their side. To do that, you need to supply a password. Your ISP would have already set the password on the router before giving it to you.

     

    The problem is when you buy a fresh router from store. The password will be on default and anyone in the same subnet zone can update your firmware if they know the make of your router and some other minimal information. They can then set your router to redirect all your traffic to a different IP and forward it from there. So a 3rd party will be able to intercept all your communication and you won't know a thing. All precautions like firewalls, anti-viruses, etc on your computer are useless in this case.
