Your Router And Russian Malware

Posted by on in Alerts

The headlines tell you you need to reboot your router to make sure your router isn't a part of a large botnet. Rebooting removes the malware from the device's memory, but it's likely to come back later if you don't lock the device down by changing the default passwords and updating the device. 

If you are a client of ours, however, and are using a SonicWall firewall (either stand-alone or as part of our WestonShield program), then you don't need to worry about rebooting the firewall as Sonicwall devices are not affected.
