Ongoing brute-force attacks against Synology devices


Recommended Posts

Synology PSIRT (Product Security Incident Response Team) has recently seen and received reports on an increase in brute-force attacks against Synology devices. Synology's security researchers believe the botnet is primarily driven by a malware family called "StealthWorker." At present, Synology PSIRT has seen no indication of the malware exploiting any software vulnerabilities.

Yep can confirm. Had an unusual uptick in failed login attempts.

Reminder to:

- Disable default admin account

- Carefully prune permissions

- Enforce strong passwords

- Enable login blocking + geographic blacklists

- Use 2fa, especially on admin accounts

- Have another backup of your data
