    QNAP 4.4.1.1216, - hacked? Seeking opinions.

    The issue was not a hack. It was the Qsirch and another utility by Qnap. As Qnap upgraded the OS, it introduced "better" search functionality, with AI - so that you can find what you're looking for faster with better results, - images and documents. So, when those services are enabled (cunningly...

    QNAP 4.4.1.1216, - hacked? Seeking opinions.

    @dosborne - many thanks. I thought more about what you'd said, and I think that you're right. After installing the most recent update, I hadn't logged into the system till the incident. In the messages that I was prompted - one had to do with data - privacy, and I recall agreeing to it. (i was...

    QNAP 4.4.1.1216, - hacked? Seeking opinions.

    @ColinTaylor , - perhaps - although I doubt - as I usually receive a push notification that a firmeware update is available - ready for installation; but that wasn't the case then.

    Traffic analyzer - dig deeper

    where are those tools? would they tell me the internal IP address of the traffic and perhaps the port? - I'm still learning about Merlin. - The downloaded traffic is Steam, I was setting up a gaming computer at the time, but didn't enable any outgoing streams from Steam. Many thanks Val

    QNAP 4.4.1.1216, - hacked? Seeking opinions.

    Hmmm, I'm going to be hopeful and run with perhaps no-one had gotten in - i just don't know. Perhaps, some fault or so in the QNAP OS that produced those messages of drives formatted and privacy. The QNAP mycloud service had always 2FA enabled since I signed up to it, and I've disabled it now...

    Router ought to be secure. Running Merlin's 384.15 - with skynet installed - with custom and large ip-filters - and with diversion and dnsproxy. I don't have any IoT devices. All remote access & management into the network is disabled (no vpn or anything allowed inwards). The only service...

    Traffic analyzer - dig deeper

    Hi, I've scavenged around but perhaps not deep enough, so seeking some help. Is it possible for me to review - pull out any logs from the traffic monitor page (within the traffic analyzer tab), to identify IP-related traffic. When I look at the daily graph - it is reporting that I had...

    QNAP 4.4.1.1216, - hacked? Seeking opinions.

    Hi, I noticed something bizarre late yesterday when I logged onto my TVS NAS, that has me confused. Perhaps, someone can give an opinion on this. Please excuse the long narrative. - I logged on via the web-browser, and was prompted with a message asking me to agree on Data-Privacy for Qnap, -...
