Russian malware?

Postby woodchuck » Wed May 30, 2018 5:53 am

Are the routers commonly used in Peru safe from Fancy Bear malware?

Claro uses Cisco routers which can be accessed and updated either remotely (by Claro) or by yourself. PM me if you need the universal Claro systems admin password to access the router admin system.

In nearly all cases, router malware can be removed by simply restarting (rebooting) the router. Since the power grid in Peru in on the blink at least once a month I don't think a lot of routers will be infected :lol:. Besides, the hackers usually go after corporate routers,m routers that are in use with companies.

As long as there's money to made through hacking then expect more criminal activities.
