It's come to light that the ASUS 'Live Update' utility was 'backdoored' with malware. (Similar to the CCleaner hack in 2017). https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/security/asus-admits-its-live-update-utility-was-backdoored-by-apt-group/ Official statement made yesterday by ASUS: https://www.asus.com/News/hqfgVUyZ6uyAyJe1 Sounds a lot like the 2017 CCleaner infection. We'll wait to see just how big this 'small number of devices' turns out to be. (But it's believed to be 500K plus).
