San Francisco. Security researchers have discovered a bunch of vulnerabilities affecting 4G hotspots from Chinese handset maker ZTE that could allow a potential hacker to redirect traffic from the hotspot to other malicious websites.

A Pen Test Partners researcher said the security flaws in the hotspot devices were disclosed at Defcon -- an annual hacking conference in Las Vegas.

According to Null, in order to exploit the vulnerabilities, an attacker only needed the victim to visit a malicious website using one of ZTE's hotspots.

Once the attacker had the password to the hotspot, there were plenty of options for further hacks.
