Had 2 emails from vm to say a device using my router has iotmirai malware and win32/protos walware on. After a bit of searching it says it was likely a nas device. I use iPhones and iPads and only nas devices are 2 smart TVs not connected to WiFi and a CCTV. On the dates it said it detected malware the only device that was on that was not active days before and since malware detected was the CCTV. Have not got a clue how to get rid of it or search for it seems as iPhones don’t have a scan on them that I know of. Terrified in case it’s spread to the device I use for banking etc. Can anyone help?

To be honest I have 1 windows device and it’s in a cupboard gathering dust with no power as it hasn’t been used for that long. We use iPhones and iPads mostly. Have smart tv which is not connected to WiFi anymore hasn’t been for ages and a security camera I use for keeping tabs on dogs when I go out. That’s the only device that was active on those dates that was not iPhones
To be honest I thought it would be the camera. I did change the password when I set it up for first time about 4 years ago but for what It cost and how long I had it had my money worth from it. I played it safe and deleted the camera app from iPhones and iPads. Do you think they are safe from the malware?? Wary of connecting the camera to change anything now so I will just invest in a new up to date one.
