Bleeping Computer : HERE


Description of Ransomware Security Issue:

In a Ransomware attack,the Ransomware encrypt stored information and then demands payment to decrypt the information. At this time, based on the current information available to us, the antivirus companies have not yet created a new tool  to decrypt information attacked by the Cr1ptT0r Ransomware (or Ransomware family). To recover the encrypted information, users will need to retrieve the data from their previous backup.

The models in the table below are potentially at risk. For owners of these products, we urge you to take the following actions promptly:


Model H/W Version Latest F/W Version Actions to take
DNS-320 Ax 2.05 Disable the Internet connection to NAS
DNS-320 Bx 1.02 Disable the Internet connection to NAS
DNS-325 Ax 1.05 Disable the Internet connection to NAS
DNS-320L Ax 1.11 Update to latest firmware version
DNS-327L Ax 1.10 Update to latest firmware version

Ransomware is a virus that attacks a device. Once the device is infected by the virus, firmware updates will not restore your data.  Firmware updates are often directed  to address security vulnerabilities from internet attacks in D-Link devices. Given new tools were created by anti-virus companies to address the prior instances of ransomware attacks, there may be decrypting tools developed in the future. Until that time, Tto better protect your devices from Internet viruses, malware and ransomware:

1. Do not connect these devices directly to the Internet and/or port-forward services directly from the Internet.

  1. Keep device firmware up-to-date.

  1. Any computer accessing information on these devices should have appropriate anti-virus protection and malware protection enabled

  1. Regular back-ups of stored information on these devices should occur in case a disaster recovery is needed.

For DNS-320 Ax/Bx users, a security patch firmware version will be available soon.  Until it is available, please disable the port forwarding service and DMZ setting on your router to prevent direct access by the ransomware.

D-Link DNS-325 has passed its end of service date as displayed on its product support page. Once a product is end of service, it is no longer supported by D-Link through customer support and it does not receive software/firmware updates. For these models, please remove the Internet access of NAS on your router by disabling the port forwarding and DMZ setting.

Please check back here or on the specific product page for the most updated information.

D-LINK HAS REVEALED a new piece of software designed to simplify distributed network management through a single cloud portal.

D-Link Central Wi-Fi Manager CWM-100 is a free toolkit to allow multi-site businesses to manage the network from a central hub.


The software is a free download offered with selected D-Link wireless access point products.

“In a connected world, the network is at the heart of the business. The growth in adoption of cloud-based applications, real-time communication and remote working mean that connectivity is now mission critical,” said Paul Routledge, marketing manager for D-Link UK.

Security is offered via a support structure for local database, external RADIUS server, LDAP and WiFi password authentication and granular user access control.

Management can be assigned to a range of roles with specific access and authorisation levels, augmented by NAT pass through to allow the controller to manage firewalled access points.

Routledge said: “The D-Link Central Wi-Fi Manager allows any network manager – whether an internal employee or an external provider – to deliver real-time monitoring and management, as well as detailed reporting. The end result is a network that is easy to deploy, set up, monitor and upgrade.”

Also included is the ability to create an access point once and then reuse that same configuration over again with other APs.

Reports included are fully graphical, allowing network managers to drill down into the needs and requirements of the network from a technical and user perspective.

D-Link is “trying to recapture the high end of the market in terms of performance,” VP of marketing Dan Kelley told me in an embargoed interview last month. I haven’t been able to test D-Link’s new Ultra Performance series of 802.11ac Wi-Fi routers and adapters, but their radical industrial designs are sure to turn heads.

D-Link is showing three new routers at CES this week—the D-Link DIR-895L/R, the DIR-890L/R, and the DIR-885L/R—along with the spherical DWA-192/R USB 3.0 Wi-Fi adapter.

The company is also pushing the price envelope, asking enthusiasts to cough up $310 for the model in the middle of the new range. It should be available for purchase now. D-Link says the rest of the lineup will be available in the second quarter, but it has not released pricing guidance on the other new routers or the Wi-Fi adapter.

D-Link’s new DIR-885L/R 802.11ac Wi-Fi router is in the center. The flagship DIR-895L/R is on the left and the DIR-890L is on the right. 

The flagship DIR-895L/R is based on Broadcom’s BCM47094 chipset and can operate two independent networks on the 5GHz frequency band (with theoretical TCP throughput to 802.11ac clients of 2165Mbps on each), and a third network on the 2.4GHz band with theoretical TCP throughput of 1000Mbps. It will be outfitted with eight high-power antennas, and it supports MU-MIMO (multiple users-multiple input/multiple output) technology so that it can stream high-definition video and audio to multiple clients.

The DIR-890L, equipped with six antennas, can also operate two independent 5GHz networks, but its TCP throughput maxes out at 1300Mbps to 802.11ac clients. It delivers throughput up to 600Mbps on its third network, which operates on the 2.4GHz band. The four-antenna DIR-885L/R, meanwhile, operates one 5GHz network with throughput up to 2165Mbps, and one 2.4GHz network with throughput up to 1000Mbps. D-Link arrives at its AC5300 label by summing those numbers. (The AC5600 and throughput numbers in the slide below have been revised downward.)

D-Link’s DIR-895R/L boasts very high specifications, and will likely have a price tag to match when it ships in the second quarter. 

All three of the new routers will feature an all-new user interface that should make it easier to set up and manage your router and network using only a smartphone or tablet—good news for consumers who don’t have a Mac or PC. And all three will support beam forming, D-Link’s QoS engine, and SharePort technology for sharing a USB printer and a USB storage device on the network.

D-Link’s DWA-192 802.11ac Wi-Fi adapter is shaped like a ball. 

D-Link describes its D-Link DWA-192/R as an AC1900 Wi-Fi adapter, but arrives at that label by summing its maximum throughput of 1300Mbps on the 5GHz frequency band with its max throughput of 600Mbps on the 2.4GHz band. As an AC adapter, it has the same specification as the Asus USB-AC56 adapter (although that part supports maximum throughput of only 300Mbps on the 2.4GHz band).

I suspect the DWA-192/R’s spherical design will render the adapter more omnidirectional, but I’ll have to wait until I can test one. D-Link expects it to ship in the second quarter, but hasn’t announced pricing.

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Sept. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — D-Link today announced two new unmanaged, rack-mountable, 10/100 PoE switches – the 8-port DES-1008P+ and the 16-port DES-1018MP. Both products are designed for demanding applications that require full PoE power (15.4 Watts) on all ports simultaneously, such as surveillance networks with power-hungry IP cameras, or wireless network infrastructures powering 802.11ac access points.

D-Link New PoE Switches

“Some IT professionals and system integrators prefer to future-proof their networks by deploying PoE switches with full power budgets,” said Steven Olen, director of product marketing, D-Link Systems, Inc. “D-Link’s new DES-1008P+ and DES-1018MP give them that peace of mind. Even though they may not need all that power today, they can rest easy knowing it will be available when their networking requirements change tomorrow.”

The DES-1008P+ features eight 10/100 Mbps Fast Ethernet PoE+ ports, all of which support IEEE 802.3at (30W). With a total PoE power budget of 140 Watts, this switch can comfortably handle 15.4 Watts of PoE on all eight ports simultaneously, with extra power to spare. Its fanless design ensures quiet operation in all environments.

The DES-1018MP features 16 10/100 Mbps Fast Ethernet ports supporting IEEE 802.3af (15.4 Watts). Its 246.4 Watt power budget allows all 16 ports to drive 802.3af devices simultaneously, without concern of going over budget limits. The DES-1018MP also offers two Gigabit SFP/RJ45 combo uplink ports, which provide plenty of bandwidth back to the core of the network. A smart fan automatically adjusts itself to reduce power consumption and noise, and enhanced surge protection on all PoE ports protects the switch when feeding power to outdoor PoE devices.

Both models come in rugged metal housings that can be desktop or rack mounted, and both utilize an internal 100 – 240 VAC power supply. Like all D-Link® business class Ethernet switches, the DES-1008P+ and DES-1018MP offer a Limited Lifetime Warranty, furthering D-Link’s commitment to product quality and long-term customer confidence.

The new DES-1008P+ and DES-1018MP unmanaged 10/100 PoE switches are currently shipping through D-Link’s vast network of channel partners, including value-added resellers and distributors and online retailers. Detailed specifications are available online at
