MalwareThe FBI, DHS and DoJ advised rebooting your router to clear it from advanced stages of the Russian-linked Malware VPNFilter. The malware infecting small office and home office (SOHO) routers and NAS devices is linked to the Russian military-backed hackers Sofacy Group, aka Fancy Bear and APT 28.
If your router is infected, a full power cycle of the router will reset the infection to a lower threat level.
Power cycling is the best first step, but your router may require further steps to fully remove an infection. We suggest updating your router firmware and consulting your router manufacturer’s website or customer support for specifics regarding your router.
