salute bleepingcomputer community!

 

nowadays since tragic disclosure of meltdown and spectre vulnerability I have a weird feeling someone pwning my devices persistently!

I have been fighting with invisible wraiths for a few months without success (reinstalling my debian based distro among other things)! Everything started one day when I have seen my wifi internet connection drops down from nowhere and in a blink of an eye there was offered new access point with same name popping out at screen and requesting my password to authenticate! Well that was obvious self evident evil twin attack! Unfortunately my relatives from an house couldn't determent an attack so they lapse into pitfall of a virtual burglar and thats when everything began downfall. There was no hope in changing credentials even though i did that immediately.

Basically I have decided to reinstall my linux machine in a few days later since I have seen some paranormal bleep going on... unfortunately at that point I didnt know there was serious flaw in amd and intel chips.

Once I have found out about meltdown and spectre I straightaway tested to see if I am vulnerable and obviously everything was red alert after running a script checker from github (i have look through the code!)

In the main I have applied available microcode and kernel patches for my device which is 32 bit machine and there is no bleep way to fix everything because there is no available patches for all the new coming variants of an attack so after all the struggle I am still vulnerable and exposed.

However I have decided to contact you and see if there is any possibilities to get ride of the attackers lowlevel persistence (possibly bootkit)  so he would at least need to phish the new wifi access point again to continue flurry through the LAN!!

I am ready to fully cooperate for systematic persecution on removal of aggressor and hopefully anyone is willing to help me out through the long ride of hell!

i would appreciate if anyone assist me into this and recommend me necessary steps in gnu free software exclusively and respectively

 

well i am quite sure there is kind of a bootkit implanted in all of my devices, yesterday i have run free among other command line things to display memory information and have seen around 1GB of buffers/caches memory at kernel level?  how do I exclude this? and should i flash bios?

 

also i have suspicions that my router is rooted with shell (even though i did factory reset) from where it execute unauthorized commands to compromise devices over LAN and possibly monitoring me through malformed dns ? but there is no open port 22 for ssh on router neither i have any access beside silly comercial gateway configuration page outdated since 2014! (after researching on google there is disclosed vulnerability capable of remote code execution from vulnerable router configuration page)

I am thinking to flash a firmware with OpenWrt?  but after reading the contract of an internet provider allegedly the router is not in my property since they assigned a device to me temporarily and we have no right to adapt software/firmware/hardware for our expectancy.... rofl how the fck should i get ride of a malware from exploited router?!

 

 

 

yes i am aware there is tons of reports and you guys are volunteering so will be patient!

thank you for your attention!
