FBI Warns: Reboot Your Router

Published on Wednesday, May 30, 2018 in Internet

Over the Memorial Day weekend, the FBI urged individuals to reboot their routers to help thwart malware that has been circulating throughout the US.

If you currently use the MEC-issued router, you do not need to reboot at this time. However, if you use an off-the-shelf router, even if it’s connected to our router, we recommend you reboot right away. Then update the router’s firmware and change the login and password for the router administration interface along with the passwords for any services accessed via the router (i.e. email, online banking, social media, etc.).
