QNAP ransomware suceptability?

Recommended Posts

Got patched last week by QNAP   kinda soon after a patch a month or so ago.  Looked into why and found out

https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/security/qnap-warns-customers-of-recent-wave-of-ransomware-attacks/

 

2ND such vulnerability this year in QNAP

 

https://www.zdnet.com/article/qnap-nas-devices-targeted-in-another-wave-of-ransomware-attacks/

 

never got notified directly by qnap, but if you look into the release notes for the firmware patch , you find a casual reference to this

 

 

I may just be that I am not on the lookout, but I dont seem to see any similar things happening on other platforms such as synology?

 

Is this a fair statement ?      what has been the experience of synology/drobo/etc   users?

If you have a device registered with an company, I would expect them to reach out to you knowing exactly what product you have..

 

I had QNAP's globally at one point and it wasnt until someone posted something on a tech forum that I knew we had a problem, granted this was 6+years ago but still..

I agree with trig0r, they should of notify you. I have a bunch of Synology spread out across friends & family and haven't had any problems.
