UniFi users open to hacker attacks (updated)


PETALING JAYA: Subscribers to Telekom Malaysia Bhd’s high-speed broadband service UniFi are vulnerable to exploitation due to a router setting that leaves it open to outside attack.

A hacker could take control of the router remotely and could, for instance, surf using the owner’s account, open ports that could leave the computer vulnerable to further attacks and spy on the user’s Internet activities.
