FBI Router warning

The bad guys are at it again.  A rare request came from the FBI to all u.s. citizens.  They would like for you to reboot your home or business router and I would include your cable modem or DSL modem also.  This is something you should do every once in awhile anyway as it ensures you’re running the fastest you could be running.

The bad guys have put some software out there that infects a wide range of routers and a simple reboot, I have been told, will help resolve the issue and keep them out of your business.

One of the things we do on a regular basis is update the firmware that’s on your equipment so it has the latest tech as well as the latest security.  Going to your manufacturer’s website will help you through that process if you want to attack it yourself.

Here is the link to the article from the FBI.
