I reboot my Almond + every day but, are we vulnerable to this hack?

@ Yaku,

None of the Securifi routers are vulnerable to this bug. Out of an abundance of caution, please reboot that device once as per the guidelines from FBI. As a general security measure, please always use a strong password for your local web Interface. The credentials for this access can be found in the "Settings --> Advanced" section of our Almond mobile app.

Ashok --

I suggest Securifi do a blog post about VPNFilter and its relationship to the company's routing products.  I trust that most every Almond's default settings -- which includes leaving remote accessibility turned off and giving each SKU its own unique, nonobvious password for logging into it -- make it reasonably secure against a threat of this kind.  But as threats go, this one's pretty serious.  It would be a good idea not to ignore it ... especially since the news is pretty positive for Securifi customers.

My view from the cheap seats.
