Hackers Suspected As 900K Hit By Internet Outage

Even though a fix is currently being rolled out, there is no word on how many people are still without internet at this time. It will be interesting to see what model the affected routers turn out to be in this incident.

German Telekom is now looking into evidence of a hacker attack after 900,000 internet, phone and television clients were hit by a massive outage starting on Sunday and going into Monday. Telekom advises customers to try disconnecting their routers, waiting a while, and then plugging back in. The company reported that with the software update, resetting the router in this way had solved the problem for many customers.
