A recent report by security company Banbreach has found that in the past month, the number of routers compromised by cryptojacking software in India has doubled. The report indicates that hackers have cracked over 30,000 routers within the country, Hard Fork reported Oct. 5.
Banbreach managed to track Internet traffic and detect all devices on the Internet with public IP addresses, which made it possible to examine traffic passing through routers.
In the course of its research, Banbreach grouped populated areas of India into three categories from most to least dense. According to the report, 45 percent of the infected routers in India are in the least densely populated areas.
