Technical Bulletin: Protect Yourself from the Mirai Malware
2017-02-17 Return to List

We at InHand Networks are concerned with your security. Please take a moment to review your InHand routers and determine if they are susceptible to the latest internet worm, the Mirai.

 

To protect your routers from Mirai, we strongly recommend that you do the following:

 

1. Enable encrypted HTTPS management on your router.

2. Change the port number of your HTTPS management interface.

3. Disable plain-text HTTP and telnet administration on your router.

4. Change your password to at least an eight character long password.

How do I access my router with HTTPS?

Accessing your router by https can be simple. Open web browser, and enter “https://” into the URL bar preceding the IP of your router. The HTTPS header lets your browser know to read the webpage as an encrypted https page instead of plaintext http.
A colon and the port number  such as “:443” should be written directly after the IP. An example URL could be https://192.168.2.1:9443. This tells the browser to use a different TCP port-number.
You may get an insecure connection warning, but that only means the router is using something called a “self-signed” certificate, which is required for any standalone device. Please click Advanced and select allow to continue.

We will strive to maintain high levels of awareness and updates for any future security threats.
