Recently we have been made aware of a serious threat - there has been malware discovered that has infected more than 500,000 devices.
The malware called VPNFilter works its way inside routers and network devices which have not been updated. Once there, the malware has free access to your network and traffic. The vulnerability can now be detected but the only way to remove the infection is to factory reset the device and update the firmware. See this LINK for more details, a checker and list of vulnerable devices.
We are highly recommending to all our clients that your modems, routers and Wi-Fi devices have their firmware updated to the latest version and if any of your devices are on the list of vulnerable devices that they be factory reset, updated and settings reloaded.
We are able to update these devices for you onsite within the Christchurch and North Canterbury area. We are also happy to help out if your in other areas remotely. This may also require the internet/network to be down for a short time while the updated and reset are run.
As mentioned we believe this to be a serious threat to your devices so please arrange to get this important upgrade done.
