Indian public sector Telecom company BSNL( Bharat sanchar Nigam Limited) asked its broadband customers to change the default system passwords after a malware attack on 2,000 modems earlier this week.

Malware impacted only those users who didn’t changed their default password ‘admin’  and now they are not able to login because, Malware changed their default password.

“The situation has been addressed to a great extent. We are advising customers that they should immediately change their passwords, and they should not be worried about using broadband once they have done that,” BSNL Chairman Anupam Shrivastava told.

He said: “Malware didn’t impact the core network, billing system or any other thing but, Modem only ”.
