A new Mirai-based botnet exploits a zero-day vulnerability in thousands of routers and cameras from various brands. The vulnerability allows the botnet to execute arbitrary code on the devices and use them for malicious purposes, such as launching distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks or stealing sensitive data. It seems that none of the vendors have issued a patch yet. There are some mitigation steps for protecting your devices, such as changing the default passwords, restricting remote access, and updating the firmware if possible.
