Re: SUPERHUB 2 HACKING WARNING

if you connect to your Superhubs IP, mine says "Welcome to your Virgin Media Super Hub 2"

 

easier still, its written on the bottom with the serial number Smiley Happy

Re: Super Hub security

i am assuming that the BBC and other sites "news" is a non story and is based on the hub 2 having  a known default password of changeme , or admin . I forget with as I am on hub3. 

it emanates from which .co.uk who I would not trust to debug a toaster. Ill informed luddite scaremongers

Re: SUPERHUB 2 HACKING WARNING

just wrap it in a "Keep Calm and stop believing the fake media" T shirt Smiley Happy

there's nothing in there that's worth hacking - your wi-fi password ? - pointless to steal that as its too feeble to reach the front garden  in most installs

Re: SUPERHUB 2 HACKING WARNING

Look on the bottom of the router. It will tell you.

Re: SUPERHUB 2 HACKING WARNING

I don't get that message when I log in; and all those long serial numbers on the back of the hub (not underneath) mean nothing to me!

Re: Virgin Media urges password change over hacking risk

I've not received any communication from VM on the subject, not that it's earth shattering news.
