Due to the still-occurring abuse wave through FRITZ!Box, this is here to inform you on the most important steps you can take to protect yourselves against the attacks:
1. Immediate action: disable remote access via HTTPS (port 443) and MyFRITZ! (also: not subsequently activate!)
2. Make the updates provided by AVM available software
3. Change FRITZ! Box login password AND the phone number password in myWinet Admin Panel after updating
4. Password safety: At a minimum: 8 characters with numbers and letters, large and small letters. Avoid dictionary lexicons.
