Mirai malware targeting top TP-Link routers to hijack into DDoS attacks

Experts have detected a high-severity security flaw in certain TP-Link Wi-Fi routers (opens in new tab) that’s currently being used to hijack the devices and recruit them into a vast botnet that would later be used for Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks.

A report from the Zero Day Initiative (ZDI), a program created to encourage the reporting of zero-day vulnerabilities privately to the affected vendors found that since mid-April this year, threat actors started abusing CVE-2023-1389, a high-severity flaw found in TP-Link Archer A21 (AX1800) Wi-Fi routers.
