Internet users urged to reboot routers by FBI

​The FBI is urging those who use certain routers to reboot in an effort to stop a sophisticated malware system linked to Russia.

The malware has infected hundreds of thousands of internet routers, and is capable of blocking web traffic, collecting information that passes through home and office routers and disabling devices entirely, according to an article by the New York Times.

Although no HTC router was on the list, we are urging any customer to reboot (turn off the router for 15 seconds and then back on) for safety’s sake.
