Post by: JavaLawyer on February 26, 2019, 05:37:25 PM
ShareCenter Ransomware Vulnerability

OVERVIEW


STATUS

D-Link is currently investigating this issue.

BEST SOLUTION

The following are recommendations that will minimize the potential impact by this security threat until a fix is made available


ALTERNATIVE SOLUTION (WILL MINIMIZE EXPOSURE BUT NOT 100% GUARANTEE OF SAFTEY)

The following approach will prevent direct attacks from the Internet, but will not protect your ShareCenter from an infected PC within your LAN:

If you own a D-Link router, use the ACCESS CONTROL feature to block direct attacks from the Internet. The ACCESS CONTROL feature allows you to blacklist the ShareCenter IP address, so it will be invisible/blocked from attacks from the Internet.
