Home Office Router Security

So, now that you know, what are you going to do about it?

Normally I'd be calling my computer guy. (Sorry, Glen. I'm costing you business.) Serendipitously, I found that my anti-virus software also scans for network vulnerabilities.

If you're using Avast free anti-virus, this is now part of the latest upgrade. If you're not using Avast, get it here.
