Just heard about this recent and very dangerous type of attack.

http://fortune.com/2018/05/23/vpnfilter-cisco-talos-malware-router-hack-russia/

 

Just whizzing , yelling and no single useful word about infection method and/or attack vector.

 

Does anybody know anything? Maybe security gurus can shed the light how to protect router from it?
