I could not even sign in to my router initially. The IP address was changed? I had to do a full system factory re-set and firmware update to regain control over the DNS. Once done, I changed passwords. A notice sent from Charter here in Michigan alerted me, or I would not have known. I will spread the word on Facebook if it will help awareness of this Botnet attack, but it looks like a very extreme test of servers and also effects users as far as accessibility of routers. Perhaps users may help identify these activities if they are aware. Most people I know would not even open an email as I did and check their IP address.
