By Huseyn Valiyev - Trend:

Users of AztelekomNet, an Azerbaijani state-owned internet service provider (ISP), faced problems in accessing the internet due to hackers' activities, Aztelekom Production Association (PA) told Trend on March 6.

Aztelekom PA said the problem's cause was in TP-LINK modems, which have vulnerability, allowing hackers to gain unauthorized access to user devices and restrict access to the internet.

To resolve this problem, AztelekomNet posted a video tutorial on its website on setting up ADSL-modems.
