How do you know?  Has anyone disclosed specifics?

I can understand that keeping details under wraps is sometimes
required for operational security, but if the attacks are clearly
succeeding, I would have expected those who posted “do something,
now!” messages at least some pointer to technical details of what was
going on.

Not that the underlying threat will go away until we find a way to
clean up almost all of the compromised devices (and without breaking
the Internet along the way, forever).
