QNAP has urged its customers to install and run its latest firmware and malware removal tools on their NAS boxes amid a surge in ransomware infections.

Two file-scrambling nasties, Qlocker and eCh0raix, are said to be tearing through vulnerable QNAP storage equipment, encrypting data and demanding ransoms to restore the information.

Even if its not on the internet its probably wise to update the firmware to the latest available anyway.

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Thanks for this heads-up! Think ours might be got rid of after this... Not that there's anything of high value on it, mainly just the PVR recordings from my media PC.
