RESET YOUR ROUTER!

The FBI issued an urgent warning to everyone who owns an internet router: Turn it off and turn it back on, and do it right away.

According to the New York Times, "a sophisticated malware system linked to Russia" has already infected thousands of routers. The malware is capable of blocking web traffic, collecting information that passes through home and office routers, and disabling your devices entirely.

The Russian hackers are using something called VPNFilter malware to target home and small office routers. Aside from restarting your router by turning it off and on, the FBI also advises using encryption, upgrading firmware, and changing your passwords.

The hacking has been attributed to Fancy Bear, the Russian group that hacked the DNC.

So now the FBI is making the urgent request: HELP FIGHT THE ATTACK AND RESET YOUR ROUTER TODAY..
