Netgear routers are among those targeted by the VPNFilter malware that has infected 500,000 routers worldwide, according to the F.B.I.
SAN FRANCISCO - The FBI is warning the public to reboot the routers they have in their home or office to disrupt a malware that may have infected as many as 500,000 routers in 54 countries.
Follow these steps to reboot your router:
1. Power "Off" the device.
2. Unplug the router from the electrical outlet.
3. Leave the device unplugged for at least 30 seconds.
4. Plug the router back into the electrical outlet and power "On" the device.
5 Check to see if your internet connection was re-established.
The bureau said it was able to take down a website that was controlling the malware before the second phase could be unleashed. The malware is capable of collecting personal information that passes through the infected routers, block web traffic and disable the devices. The FBI said rebooting routers will disrupt the malware and help the bureau identify which networking devices were affected.
