Its been revealed that over 6% of all attacks on WordPress sites come from hacked home routers.
In one month alone, over 57,000 unique home routers we used to attack WordPress sites.
Those home networks are now being explored by hackers who have full access to them via the hacked home router. They can access workstations, mobile devices, wifi cameras and any other devices that use the home WiFi network.
Luckily the fabulous guys at Wordfence have provided an easy-to-use online tool, which can quickly check if the router you are using is vulnerable to this vulnerability.
