Warning for all internet users


Hey everyone. I had a really nasty experience the past few days, our router got hacked, regardless of the fact that we now have the best anti-virus program out there. While our router was hacked, it was impossible to go unto the internet and I am sorry that I didn’t respond to emails or blog posts.

As a warning to others, there are two messages doing the rounds on the internet at the moment. We are not sure whether this contributed to our router being hacked, or if this was a problem on it's own, but please be careful. They pop up when you want to access the internet.

  • Your internet browser is outdated. Please upgrade (recommended).
  • Your flashplayer is outdated. You must upgrade.

If or when you see these messages, do not click on it. Go to task manager (CTRL + ALT + DELETE). We had a specialist IT guy come in to fix the problem, which can be costly, but rather safe than sorry, right?  
 
We now have a great anti-malware program as well, just in case. The IT guy is figuring out a way to stop our router from being hacked again. So please people, be safe out there.
