Neowin: FBI urges router owners to perform a reboot to stop VPNFilter malware

Neowin: FBI urges router owners to perform a reboot to stop VPNFilter malware. “Earlier this week, Cisco’s security team disclosed a Russian-developed malware called VPNFilter which compromised at least 500,000 routers built by Linksys, MikroTik, NETGEAR, and TP-Link as well as network-attached storage devices manufactured by QNAP. In addition to the threat protections rolled out by Cisco, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has also released a public advisory calling on users of the affected networking devices to reboot the routers in order to destroy the malware.”
