Deutsche Telekom has confirmed up to 900,000 customers have had their broadband service cut off following a possible hack of its hardware.
That figure had now fallen to 400,000 as security measures had been implemented, the German company said. But Reuters reported some affected customers may still be unable to make contact in order to report the problem.
The company, which has 20 million customers in Germany, has issued a software update and is asking affected customers to disconnect their routers.
