VPNFilter is a threat that targets a wide range of routers and network-attached storage (NAS) devices. VPNFilter can collect confidential information and tamper with network traffic as it passes through an infected router, as well as render the router unusable. The malware can also survive a reboot of the router.
Symantec offers this free online tool that performs a quick check to determine if your router may be impacted by VPNFilter.
The online tool checks if your device has been compromised by a specific component used by VPNFilter, known as the the ssler plugin. If this tool finds that your router is not infected with the ssler plugin, your router may still be compromised by other threats or components of VPNFilter. VPNFilter impacts a wide range of routers and a list of vulnerable routers is available in our blog on this malware.
