|Grand River Networks has announced that their network was recently attacked by hackers. This may or may not be effecting routers that you have in your home or business. |
In a press release from GRM Networks:
The malicious code attacked many of our customers who have a Comtrend 5363 router in their home or business.
If you have a Comtrend 5363 router and you have had slow or no Internet speed, it is most likely that your router has been attacked. Please call Internet tech. support at 1-800-721-2577 for assistance with this problem.
Some routers can be loaded with a patch to resolve the issue. Other routers require replacement.
We apologize for the inconvenience, but the cyber security threats you have heard about are real. Other Internet service providers have received this same attack. We have taken steps to stop this current attack, but there always seems to be another way for the hackers to create problems for customers who just want their Internet service to work.
Please notify your Congressional representative and tell him/her to create tougher penalties for Internet hackers, especially from foreign countries such as China.
