Russians hack Wi-Fi Routers: Are You Affected?

If you are running a Wi-Fi router in your home or business, you'll want to immediately perform a factory-reset and a firmware update. A newly identified malware which has directly targeted over 500,000 Wi-Fi routers across the world, which Cisco Talos calls "VPNFilter," can steal personal information, redirect web traffic, infect other devices and even "brick" infected devices to make them unusable. The malware is confirmed to have affected several Netgear, Linksys, TP-Link and MicroTik models, but likely actually includes many other brands and models.

Fox News posted the story just hours ago: http://www.foxnews.com/tech/2018/05/30/russians-hack-wi-fi-routers-what-to-do-right-now.html

Cisco Talos stated in a blog post, "Given our observations with this threat, we assess with high confidence that this list is incomplete and other devices could be affected. We recommend that users of SOHO routers and/or NAS devices reset them to factory defaults and reboot them. Due to the potential for destructive action by the threat actor, we recommend out of an abundance of caution that these actions be taken for all SOHO or NAS devices, whether or not they are known to be affected by this threat."
