A variant of the Mirai botnet is targeting almost two dozen vulnerabilities aiming to take control of D-Link, Arris, Zyxel, TP-Link, Tenda, Netgear, and MediaTek devices to use them for distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks.

The malware has been identified by Unit 42 researchers of Palo Alto Networks in two ongoing campaigns that started on March 14 and spiked in April and June.

In a report today, the researchers warn that the botnet developers continue to add code for exploitable vulnerabilities.
