Re: New VPNFilter Malware...Beware!!!

The management at Netgear gave some sound advice. Think it can apply across all brands:

-- Netgear --
NETGEAR is aware of a piece of malware called VPNFilter that might target some NETGEAR routers. To protect against this possible malware, we strongly advise all NETGEAR router owners to take the following steps:
Make sure that you are running the latest firmware on your NETGEAR router. Firmware updates include important security fixes and upgrades. For more information, see How do I update my NETGEAR router firmware using the Check button in the router web interface?.
Make sure that you have changed your default admin password. For more information, see How do I change the admin password on my NETGEAR router?.
Make sure that remote management is turned off on your router. Remote management is turned off by default and can only be turned on in your routerís advanced settings.
To make sure that remote management is turned off on your router:
On a computer that is part of your home network, type Router login in the address bar of your browser and press Enter.
Enter your admin user name and password and click OK.
If you never changed your user name and password after setting up your router, the user name is admin and the password is password.
Click Advanced > Remote Management.
If the check box for Turn Remote Management On is selected, clear it and click Apply to save your changes.
If the check box for Turn Remote Management On is not selected, you do not need to take any action.
NETGEAR is investigating and will update this advisory as more information becomes available.

Re: New VPNFilter Malware...Beware!!!

VPNFilter malware targets ASUS and DLINK routers now also and injects code into WWW

Looks like more model routers from Asus and DLink are effected. Injects malicious code into Network traffic!!!
