ZouRAT Malware virus attacks Wifi Routers
Hi, I need to discuss on ZouRAT Malware which can cripple Wifi Routers.
Recently and Currently, My Asus Wifi Router, DLINK Wifi Router are totally down.
So, I myself do not know what really happen. My Dlink Router was totally down for 2 times. I can't hardly get in to my wifi router via wifi connections. My 2.4 Ghz Wifi Channel and 5Ghz Wifi Channel are totally down. I cannot seems to access directly to the DLINK Router at all.
As for my Asus wifi router, the internet connect speed are totally down. The same problems as my DLINK Router.
Although I have internet connection, but my internet connect speed are very slow.
So, I get another China Made Router which is really a set back to me. But when I check, I noticed that there are so many ports are open. Which is not so dead secure. There so many open ports. When I did a port scan. The China Made Router is Xiaomi AX3200. The wifi setup is very poor. Not unless i can use OpenWRT with it. (Frankly, i myself do not know how to install OpenWRT. And i did not want the Wifi Router to get brick!)
But I check the firewall test with GRC website. All ports are closed but the problem is it did not pass the stealth mode. So my advice to you all do not get any cheap wifi router made from China.
When I check the CVE Vulnerabilities that most Wifi Router are not patch which ZouRAT vulnerabilities. That most wifi routers are not fully protected.
And when i use the Xiaomi Wifi Router. I came across pop-ups that my linux computer is infected with ZouRAT Trojan. It's says that the McAFee antivirus subscription are over and i need to make a purchase.
So I turn off the Xiaomi Ax3200 wifi router and wonder if any antivirus companies have detections with ZouRAT malwares.
I really do not know what to do next. My ISP keep telling me to get and buy a new Asus Router. But my biggest question is they did not have security patch for this vulnerabilities.
I have to hard reset the WIfi Router and reconfigure it again. But really, DLINK did not even have any firmware updates for a year now. As compare to ASUS wifi Router.
I had my wifi router being abuse my siblings who keeps changing things with the wifi settings when i am not around at home.
TP LInk Wifi Router Home Shield need to purchase which is a down side because there is no DOS Protection.
Netgear wifi routers are dead expensive. It too are vulnerable to ZouRAT. I did not know whether they have security patch for that.
That goes the same to Synology Wiif Router.
My other options is to use a Business base wired router and connect the wifi router directly to it. Even though you have Business wired router, if the wifi router get attack, it will go down again and again.
Sometimes you will notice that the Wifi Connection will drops automatically while you are using the computer. That I suspected that someone is trying to hack my wifi router connections.
