letter received about device on home network having potential SSDP vulnerability

Hi, I received this letter and an email and started to follow the instructions to fix this issue as per the below:

  • Access your Hub's configuration page - default web address: 192.168.0.1
  • Login with your username and password, default will be shown on the Hub itself
  • Select Advanced Settings and accept the prompt
  • Scroll down to the Security section
  • Select the Port Forwarding option
  • Tick the Delete box next to any rules that will keep port 1900 open
  • Click the Apply option
  • Select the Port Triggering option
  • Tick the Delete box next to any rules that will keep port 1900 open
  • Click the Apply option

When i got to the 6th point there was no where to "Tick the Delete box next to any rules that will keep port 1900 open"...there was no mention of any port 1900?

Please can you help and advise what i need to do???

Many thanks Matt
