From the NY Times:

The F.B.I. has an urgent request for anyone with a small office or home office internet router: Reboot it now.


A sophisticated malware system linked to Russia — and to the same group that hacked the Democratic National Committee before the 2016 election — has infected hundred of thousands of routers in the U.S.


The malware, dubbed VPNFilter, is capable of blocking web traffic, collecting information and even disabling devices. To be safe, the F.B.I. recommends that users also upgrade firmware, reset passwords and disable remote-management settings.
