VPNFilter Malware attacks Linksys, Netgear, TP-Link, Asus, D-Link and more

Linksys, Netgear, TP-Link, Asus, D-Link, Ubiquiti are vendors whose routers have been found targeted by malware called VPNFilter. This is a story that initially broke in May 2018, but more routers have been found to be affected since.

Researchers at Cisco Talos report that VPNFilter allows attackers to listen on traffic and steal website credentials; as well as remotely brick the user's router. Initially, at least 500 thousand routers were estimated to be infected; but the list of devices known to be targeted has since increased and is currently shown on the screen.

If your router is affected, Anti-Virus4U,com recommends you to reboot it, and work with your router manufacturer to check if the device is up to date. If your router is issued by your Internet Service Provider, we recommend you to contact support to check if your device is affected.
