Maleware warning broadband

Hi 

I have received two emails over the last few days headed

'Our reference: VMIS5-MALWARE-F008000374

A device using your internet connection may be infected with malware....

I have scanned all my equipment and have upto date security from bitdefender total security 2020 but cannot find any issue the latest email states the maleware is iotwopbot. My network is quite large and has quite a few items on it such as cctv onvif system and currently as I am working from home my work system has its own vpn. Could it be caused by any of these if not what else could I try? Thanks in advance.

Re: Maleware warning broadband

Try running these programs:
MBAM free: https://www.malwarebytes.com/mwb-download/
Eset online scanner: http://www.eset.com/us/online-scanner/
Adwcleaner: https://www.malwarebytes.com/adwcleaner/

Do you have guest wifi active &/or hotspot?
Perhaps someone has accessed the free wifi hotspot with an infected PC.

Check to that the CCTV hasn’t been compromised.

Re: Maleware warning broadband

IoT Wopbot appears to be associated with the Shellshock vulnerability on Linux devices.

See this PDF for background information and possible resolutions:-

Thanks for the suggestion I have added malware bytes to all my PCs and have scanned them found some vulnerabilities but no malware so I am now updating device passwords.

Re: Maleware warning broadband

I looked at the cctv and found the passwords were weak and updated them one however kept resetting to no password. Suspect this may be the problem so I have removed it and replaced. My sister had also noted it moved on its on once. Is there anyway I can get virgin to rerun the check to verify?
