    FBI warns users to reboot all home and SOHO routers

    A non-exhaustive list was produced, but now they're basically saying that if you have any home router, you'd best reboot it, because they don't know what else is affacted.

    So, just to please Buttplug:

    "Have you tried turning it off and back on again?".



    The FBI on Friday issued a formal warning that a sophisticated Russia-linked hacking campaign is compromising hundreds of thousands of home network devices worldwide and it is advising owners to reboot these devices in an attempt to disrupt the malicious software.


    The law enforcement agency said foreign cyber actors are targeting routers in small or home offices with a botnet or a network of infected devices known as VPNFilter.

    Cybersecurity experts and officials say VPNFilter has infected an estimated 500,000 devices worldwide.


    "
    The FBI recommends any owner of small office and home office routers reboot the devices to temporarily disrupt the malware and aid the potential identification of infected devices," the bureau's cyber division wrote in a public alert.


    "
    Owners are advised to consider disabling remote management settings on devices and secure with strong passwords and encryption when enabled. Network devices should be upgraded to the latest available versions of firmware."

    As a fanatically U.S. Constitutionalist citizen, I can honestly say, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that my PCs (since 1980) have never been "hacked" by any source,.......originating in "Russia",........eh?

    Well if you tried reading, you'd realise that this is about routers, not PCs, dickhead.
