ASIC miners, be careful! Mining community buzzing with massive ASIC infection

Last days mining chats, community buzzing with massive ASIC infection.

Virus affected Antminer S17 with firmware without a signature, and other models. The number of cases is growing. That’s why Hiveon ASIC developers found and tracked all the “symptoms” of this virus:
ASICs with firmware that has no signature and the tar vulnerability check, with a standard or simple password, are getting infected.
ASICs with open SSH, with a standard or simple password, are vulnerable as well.
All the ASICs in the network can get infected from a single ASIC with the virus.

Here are actually recommendations on How to protect ASIC in details.
