lol nsa was caught doing the same thing with cisco routers on trucks between the factory and the brick and mortar. Cisco supplies linksys and lots of other ones.

A public list has been made from the Asus breach. The malware is called Shadow Hammer
These are this lists of Mac addy's, you'll have to read up to decipher if you need to see if your mac address involved
https://skylightcyber.com/2019/03/28...mmer-mac-list/

Users can also check if their ASUS computers have been targeted by the attack with the help of the offline checkers provided by ASUS and Kaspersky, or online using the web checker available on Kaspersky's website.

Another thing to note is it seems to be certain MACs that are associated with Asus notebooks that were specifically targeted. I think the thing here to be more concerned about is Asus lack of action when being notified.
