With the latest VPNFilter malware its important to not only reboot your router but also to update the firmware.
The FBI called for a reboot which should help out clear anything running in memory.
You should reset your router back to factory default at a minimum but a firmware update is in order for sure.
Routers from Netgear and Linksys are being called out and other devices such as NAS and VPN solutions as well from TP-Link and Qnap.
I suspect there will be other devices added to this list as time goes by.
Basic steps are
- Note your router model and revision
- Go to Vendors support download area to obtain your firmware
- Upgrade firmware by uploading to your router
- Set up router WiFi and passwords
Directions for updating your firmware:
Couple other suggestions:
Ensure you set a different password than the default on your router.
Set up WPA-2 security on your 2.4 and 5GHz WiFI channels.
