    Reading the cited researcher’s report, and data he himself therein had link to, one wonders if this kind of attack didn’t involve exploiting router access vulnerability to deliver the code injections, ala Lizard Squad earlier this year. I suggest as the report the researcher linked to mentioned its own finding that in January a similar thing occurred, showing IPs from all over China…like Brian Krebs mentioned Google VMs had done when so hit by Lizard Squad with widely scattered concurrent queries. Cheers!
