LXer: This vigilante virus protects you against malware attacks, quotes Richard Stallman

Published at LXer:

Forget about traditional PC malware: Infecting routers and other Internet-connected devices is the new hotness among malicious actors, given its effectiveness and relative ease. But there's a new sort of malware swirling across the web-vigilante code that infiltrates your router and Internet of Things devices and then actually hardens them against traditional attacks, leaving helpful messages and homages to free software activist Richard Stallman in its wake.
