How to protect your router from Russian hackers

Dana Mathewson

This is from Kim Komando, who I trust.
A few weeks ago, the United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT) issued an alert about state-supported Russian hackers carrying out attacks against a large number of home routers in the U.S. These hackers are organized, motivated, and well-funded.

They’re not a bunch of misanthropic nerds sitting in basements. They’re getting paid to steal your digital credentials. These Russian hackers are reportedly using known weaknesses to infiltrate residential routers and utilize them to get a foothold on a network.

This is a big deal, so pay attention. When your router is compromised, a hacker can inflict damage, not just on the router itself, but on every connected device running on your network.

Let that sink in for a moment. Any device that is using your home internet is vulnerable.

Follow the links and it will lead you to a tester. You can trust Kim not to "set you up." I checked mine and I'm clean.

A note from Tim:

I think it's true. My brother Brian had to shell out $300 bucks because his router went Kaput. He didn't mention hacking, but it sounds very much like what happened to him.
