Rockford Residents: If You Own A Router, Reboot Right Now
When the FBI is getting involved with warnings regarding malicious malware, you know it's serious.
Cisco released a report last week saying, "500,000 infected devices (routers) could be destroyed with a single command."
To be on the safe side, the FBI is recommending anyone with a router at home or at your place of employment be rebooted immediately.
According to ZDNET, "The malware is capable of collecting traffic sent through infected routers, such as website credentials."
Symantec released a list of routers vulnerable to the malware. Those devices are:
- Linksys E1200
