Security vulnerability in Orbi RBR20?

Recently bought a RBR20 with one month Netgear Armor activated.

Today I received messages from my Synology NAS that it blokked the RBR20 ipaddres because of to many wrong logon attempts.

It seems the router has been hacked, what can I do about this?

Regards Fred

No worries, the Netgear Armor does run the (Bitdefender based) vulnerability scan on a regular base against all LAN IP addresses.

 

You might want to lower the NAS intrusion prevention settings, avoiding the block and reports.

Thanks, this is a relief, I will try this when I get home.

Not fluent enough on Armor/Bitdefender - probably there are ways to exclude a LAN IP address from the scan. Haven't spotted an quick solution yet.
