Thanks for the tips.
I did not know ROG routers from Asus where immune. I currently own an Asus 3100 router. I am not sure if it is a ROG router or if my router is also end of life but I do know that the routers firmware is updated. AI protection is enabled along with all the suggestions it makes. The Asus user interface on this router makes seeing and enabling all that important stuff a breeze. Even for beginner to novice users. I am not using a default password. I dont use wi-fi hotspots and I dont know how I would use VPN. I know VPNs are more secure though.
I know Asus used to have a general forum but when typing in "Asus forum" in Google, the only results that show up are the "ROG forum" and the "Zen Talk forum". I dont know if Asus took their general forum offline or what. Even scrolling in a few pages on Google, this looks to be the case (just ROG forum and third party forums discussing Asus products).
Ive posted on the general Asus forum before but not for a bit so maybe they took the forum down. Thought this was as good as place as any in the meantime to post since the attack now does involve some Asus routers. Looks like its a nasty cyber attack by another developed country against the US and other developed countries. An attack that looks to be evolving. An attack that may become sophisticated enough to involve all Asus routers in time if the responsible parties continued to evolve it or if they want to develop something different.
Your post is ridiculous, you knew exactly what you were doing. Stop....just stop. Sensationalist bull****.
Yeah dude, you are me so you know exactly what I am doing. Do you fortune tell as a side job or is it your main one? If it is I suggest finding another line of work.
I posted on this forum because one, I wanted to and to, two, because two I am concerned once I saw the list of Asus routers added to the list, and three because I dont know what happend to Asus' regular forum. But, you already knew that since you are a mind reader and a fortune teller............
Do me a favor and the next time you feel like being an ass and you dont like a thread, dont comment.
MasterC@ASUS & BluePhoenix, the reason the routers are showing as 'new' is because they weren't included in the original list of affected routers, nothing to do with their age.
Regarding support for routers, the VIP forums have been closed down.
Where do we go for support? The closed forums now link to the ROG forums as can be seen here https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?102248-Trouble-accessing-Asus-forums/page3#post723082
