Default Millions Vulnerable To New Hack Attack

The drive-by pharming attacks we told you about last week is gaining more attention. If you haven’t locked down your home network, you really need to take the time to do so.



Security firm Symantec and the Indiana University School of Informatics have discovered a new type of security threat that could leave up to 50 percent of home broadband users susceptible to attack. Called "drive-by pharming," the threat is focused on home routers, which can be reconfigured and directed to a malicious Web site if default settings and passwords are being used.
