Change Insecure Network Settings

What & Why

Insecure networks are easily penetrated using widely-available tools. There are many methods attackers can use due to manufacturer vulnerabilities and lacking default security settings.

Should your router or other networking infrastructure be breached, a number of bad things can happen:

  1. Attackers can redirect you to a web page that steals your credentials while still appearing legitimate
  2. Malicious code can be injected onto the websites you visit that hijacks normally encrypted communications, like those with your online bank, making that information readable
  3. Your router can be leveraged as a jumping off point for attacks directed at other devices within your network
  4. Access can be used to spy on you via Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices like webcams or security cameras

 

What We’ll Do

    • Identify and gain access to your router configuration admin website
    • Update several insecure settings by following self-paced guidance, including:
      • Ensure your network access password is not easily cracked
      • Ensure the use of a strong encryption method
      • Change the default router administration password
      • Disable WPS and UPnP, easily attacked but unnecessary features
      • Make sure remote administration is off
      • Update your router to use a privacy-first website lookup service (aka “DNS”) instead of internet service provider services that often inspect and sell your data
