    Might be a good time to reboot your router, and while you are at it, make sure you have the latest firmware installed on it and change your password. That is the easy way out. They are saying you really need to reset your router. Seems the FBI is saying that alleged Russian hackers were at it again and infected hundreds of thousands of routers and attached network storage devices.
