English term or phrase: Modem hijacking
Hola de nuevo:

Hace unos días hice esta misma pregunta pero no facilité el contexto. La traducción es para España.

Contexto: Would you like to shield your modem from being hijacked? Would you like to better protect yourself from being charged for internet calls you never wanted to make? If yes, then you need to know more about modem hijacking, one of the recent threats to online security when you are connected to Internet.

Muchas gracias,

Se trata de un 'timo' basado en utilizar el módem de una persona para acceder de forma gratuita a internet. Ultimamente está más de moda debido a los módems WiFi
