I wonder

I have a few spare ADSL modems and I know there is no updates for them. Wonder if they would work on their system down there? Assuming it is ADSL (and the owner can put the modem in bridge mode) I wouldn't see why it wouldn't work.

Least then I could get rid of a few spare modems I have. I have like 2 2210's, 1 4100, 1 5100b... I had a 2701HG-B 2wire till I gave it to a friend. I have ended up with these either I got for say $10-20 at the time or gave to me for testing a while back.

They are probably affected.

That part where I would disagree with, If the interface is disabled (hence dumb modem) you would have to hope that there is a machine set to a static IP address and can surf right into the modem.

That would be a tall order for a virus to be able to do that.
