ICT Security Advisory. Home Routers at Risk - U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Warning: DHS has issued a warning about malicious software, known as malware, which targets home-network routers and puts information that flows through them at risk. The most important thing for you to do is to turn your router off and then back on. Doing so disrupts certain parts of the malware and makes it non-operational.
