How does the Hijacking Detection work?

since v1.1 CTP2

The Router Hijacking Detection checks every minute if (a) the router is available (via ping) and (b) the routers administration web homepage/interface (called Presentation URL) is reachable.

If the router is available but its web interface cannot be reached for at least five minutes, then the user is blocked out of his/her router. This is a clear symptom for the router being hijacked by a worm.

See "My router might be hijacked. What can I do?"
