I got an email message a month ago from my ISP saying the government had notified them that my computer was infected by SSL freak and to take action.


I checked on my TP-Link router and found my NAT firewall had port 22, 80, 443, 21, 20, 50000 & 50001 forwarded to my computer which I did not do.


I deleted the port forwards only to find them come back again.


I disabled them and they stayed disabled and then disappeared not to return.


Yesterday my internet stopped working on all the devices in my house dispite every thing seeming fine.


I restarted the modem and it worked for 30 seconds and then stopped working again.


I restored my modem to factory settings and low and behold the Port forwards returned in the NATs again.


I then went to TP-Links website and downloaded the firmware again and flashed the modem with clean firmware and reset my modem. I removed the desktop computer from the network that was being forwarded to incase that was where it was coming from. When I checked the NAT on my modem the port forwards where back again. I have another modem in the house which works fine when I hook up.


I have googled for modem virus's but there isn't a great deal of information around. Has anyone dealt with this type of thing before.

False alarm my Network drive had UPnP turned on and as soon as I reset my modem it was jumping straight in an adding the port forwards before even got a chance to turn off UPnP on my modem.


Still not sure about the internet drop out on that modem, but I will re-investigate.


No need for anyone to chime in.


Thanks for looking
