If you've got a Linksys router running stock firmware, you may want to either get rid of it, or see if you can run some custom firmware on it such as DD-WRT or Tomato. Their is a self-replicating malware now floating around that is geared up and ready to affect and infect a whole host of Linksys hardware. I'm sure that Belkin (company that recently bought Linksys from Cisco) is not all that happy about inheriting all of this trouble. Take a look at the list below then follow the link to get more information.
The following models are listed: E4200, E3200, E3000, E2500, E2100L, E2000, E1550, E1500, E1200, E1000, E900, E300, WAG320N, WAP300N, WAP610N, WES610N, WET610N, WRT610N, WRT600N, WRT400N, WRT320N, WRT160N and WRT150N. However, Rew notes that the list might not be accurate or complete. Linksys owner Belkin confirmed that some Wireless-N routers are also affected, but didn’t name the exact models.
