Thanks for the pin! This will be a very serious issue. Take the time to review the affected devices listed. Make sure to keep your router/firewall firmware updated for your home devices.

Re: Warning! New Malware has infected 500,000+ routers, aka VPNFilter
Ups I might be infected... Since last week my tplink router was freezing, and couldn't access the gui page.. The only solution was to restart it but that resolved it just for a few hours or days. I updated the firmware but no results, than I changed the firmware with the custom ddrwt firmware and for 2 days worked fine but couldn't access some websites although I changed the DNS and Mtu... So yesterday I restored the firmware to the factory tplink. So far worked well.. But will see. burnit

FBI Seizes Control of Russian Botnet

BI agents armed with a court order have seized control of a key server in the Kremlin’s global botnet of 500,000 hacked routers, The Daily Beast has learned. The move positions the bureau to build a comprehensive list of victims of the attack, and short-circuits Moscow’s ability to reinfect its targets.

The FBI counter-operation goes after “VPN Filter,” a piece of sophisticated malware linked to the same Russian hacking group, known as Fancy Bear, that breached the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign during the 2016 election. On Wednesday security researchers at Cisco and Symantec separately provided new details on the malware, which has turned up in 54 countries including the United States.


The FBI has been investigating the botnet since at least August, according to court records, when agents in Pittsburgh interviewed a local resident whose home router had been infected with the Russian malware. “She voluntarily relinquished her router to the agents,” wrote FBI agent Michael McKeown, in an affidavit filed in federal court. “In addition, the victim allowed the FBI to utilize a network tap on her home network that allowed the FBI to observe the network traffic leaving the home router.”

I got nailed by trying to deposit funds into an on-line betting site for the Kentucky Derby (family tradition).

My Debit card was hacked as I tried to deposit the funds. I could not deposit but 15 minutes later Citibank wants to know if I charged anything in China. BASTARD CHINESE HACKERS!

CitiBank is on the ball, their AI(?) detected fraud and they contacted us before paying anything in China.

Great bank that CitiBank, they have several times stopped card theft by determining a transaction is out of character for a particular user.

This won't affect me as my Photobucket account was deleted years ago for an undisclosed break of ToS on my end. Oh well.
