700,000 Flawed Routers Flood University of Wisconsin

gulker writes "700,000 low-cost Netgear routers were shipped with a flawed SNTP client that pings a hard-coded IP address at the University of Wisconsin once a second, amounting to a 150 Mbit/second flood. U of W expects the flood will last for at least 5 years."
