May 29th, 2018 – According to FBI, many computer routers that connect US homes and businesses to the internet may be hacked or infected by malware. The malware may steal users’ personal data or cripple your website service.

“Foreign cyber actors have compromised hundreds of thousands of home and office routers and other networked devices worldwide,” the FBI said in a warning released on Friday.

What can you do?

  • Reboot your home or office routers immediately
  • Disable remote management settings on the router
  • Update your login with a secure password
  • Make sure your security is updated to the latest available version of firmware

It’s important to regularly update your firmware and have the latest VoIP networking equipment to ensure that your VoIP system is well protected from intruders.
