    Researchers have found evidence that the UPnProxy router compromise uncovered earlier in 2018 is now being used to attack computers on networks connected to the same gateways. To recap, UPnProxy is the name Akamai gave to an attack against a wide range of routers running vulnerable Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) implementations. The attack is estimated to have infected 65,000 routers from a possible target list of 3.5 million.
