They ID the router as Zylex and applies to homes where the ISP controls the router.

If you want to make sure your router is not vulnerable to being recruited for these attacks, Wordfence has created a tool that makes it easy to check. It detects whether your home router has port 7547 open or if it’s running a vulnerable version of RomPager. If you find that your router is vulnerable or port 7547 is open, Wordfence has published instructions for how to secure your device.
