rebooting your router

If you saw our earlier post about rebooting your router to remove malware and not be part of a larger problem on the internet, well you may want to read it again. If you need to, you can go here. The list of routers that could be infected just grew and you may want to check yours again against the new list. Long story short it that certain routers have been infected with malware that will make the router be used in attacks on the internet. The quickest way to help solve the problem is to reboot your router. The next best thing is to check and see if there is new firmware for your router and if so, load it in so that it overwrites the malware. Just rebooting won’t remove it. That will just keep it from running and attackers could trigger it back to active.
