Android-infecting Trojan Malware Uses Your Phone to Attack Your Router

A new form of Android Trojan malware is capable of attacking the routers controlling the wireless networks of its victims, thus leaving them vulnerable to further cyberattacks, fraud, and data theft. Dubbed ‘Switcher Trojan’, the malware uses unsuspecting Android device users as tools to redirect all traffic from Wi-Fi connected devices on the network into the hands of cybercriminal attackers.

Your router may be especially vulnerable if you have not changed the default user name and password since it was installed.
