Re: Thousands of customers ‘at risk’ following Virgin Media hack - Super Hub 2
Nice render, even if someone could afford that equipment to go into a truck, it wouldn't have the power supply to run in the back of it and parking the thing in a residential area would block up 5 to 9 homes (spotted pretty quickly.) It would also be very noisy like someone doing road digging with drills non-stop.

Re: Virgin Media urges password change over hacking risk
Virginmedia are not urging password changes. The media has blown nothing into something as always.
Its already been proven that you need a hacked device on the local network to get the router hacked. if you have done that you have already had the network hacked and the SH is not going to stop anything with or without the defaut password.
again i have to ask why? recommending this is fueling the media crap. The only way the default password can be used is if someone is on the network already. if this is the case as the media has said due to something like IoT being hacked on the network you are already hacked and access to the network is already established.
Change default passwords on everything. Remove anything with Cheap Chinese firmware. make sure no one can get access to any of the network cables for the LAN for example if they run outside.
Changing the default password on yout SH will not help you in what the media is saying. If they can access the SH with that password they are already on the network.
Its like saying hide your house keys from people already in the house. that is not going to stop them they are already in the house the keys are pointless.
