Hi, I value all the things from bleeping computer. I downloaded and ran JRT by thisusu. It kills various PUP and trojans present in the computer folders. It did not touch upon router, which is being attacked by crook programs making annoying experience of change of dns server address, causing internet connection loss to the users without their knowledge.
Moreover the PUP and popup commercial sites attack the open http port no80 and at times 21 and 23. While it may not be possible to close these ports in the router, the attackers use this port to inject sudden popups and unwanted sites without users browsing those things.
will the bleeping comuters fourm members recommend which does this protection to these users. changing of MAc address , and changing of password do not limit those attacks, If it could cause change in the router, by hiding and injecting whenever they want to inject those programs and popups.
Use of avast ofcourse, shows the vulnerability of the router, but resolving at times makes the access still more worse. That is , the problem in the router, and what it tries to resove without user consent is the problem there. If suppose, one clicks resolved, you get all this fixed message, but the users are not aware of what it is doing.
I request the maker of this tool, to include in his program and get user consent to proceed further if a threat is shown.
