    The New Zealand Herald informs -at
    http://www.nzherald.co.nz/storyprint.cfm?storyID=2048412- of the general
    tendency to install broadband modems using default passwords, thereby making
    them vulnerable.

    According to this newspaper, a computer programmer discovered that, in New
    Zealand most modems are installed with the default password. In fact, he
    even detected the activity of a hacker who modified the configuration of his
    modem in order to use his bandwidth. This type of activity is also used by
    attackers to hide the source of attacks or to disguise the origin of
    unsolicited mail.

    In general, users are not aware that malicious users could use their
    broadband modems, even though this is something that could affect everyone
    using this type of connection (wherever they live).
