Got a strong WIFI password? No? Better think about it

There has been a threat called emotet (emote t) that has been out there since 2014. The latest with this threat is taking advantage of weak, insecure wifi passwords.

When I got my Internet here, I was given a strong password, and I’m glad for that.

This article from Threat post Emotet Now Hacks Nearby Wi-Fi Networks to Spread Like a Worm goes in to detail on this evolving security threat that is probably not going to ebate any time soon.

Better catch up on this one!

    Hmmm drivebuy attacks are one thing.
    One thing to note that a mitigating factor is that if you instead of having your own router, have your isp control the net with its own modem then attaching your own whatever to it, you may be protected, at least the isps here say they manage that sort of thing.
    Of course that doesn’t stop things getting a bit annoying ie you get everything reset when you get an update.
    One thing though is you really need to get a strong password when you get the system setup.
    Having the password on your modem or the default is just asking for trouble.
