On February 22, 2019, D-Link was made aware of the Cr1ptT0r Ransomware targeting some D-Link Network Attached Storage (NAS).


Public post


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.

It’s particularly easy to fit drives to the D-Link DNS-325. All you have to do is slide up the sleek metal face-plate and push your hard disks into place. The system is entirely screwless, but feels secure nonetheless. There are fewer I/O ports on the D-Link DNS-325 than you’ll find on many of its similarly priced rivals, but the USB port on the back and the user-configurable USB Copy/Unmount button will prove sufficient for many users. You can use it to either attach extra storage or share a USB printer across your network. The power switch is activated by pushing on the fascia of the NAS itself, and the absence of a visible switch makes the device look even sleeker.

The supplied installation disc leads you through the process of installing your drives, setting up an admin password and giving the NAS an address on your network. It also prompts you to set up a DDNS account using D-Link’s free service, which makes it easier to access your NAS remotely from outside your local network if your ISP only gives you a dynamic IP address. An optional step lets you configure the NAS to send alert and notification emails to a designated address. Finally, you’re prompted to format and configure the drives and map the location of the NAS’s share to a drive letter for your PC to access. Finally, the application offers to set up a range of add-on packages for the NAS, including an audio streamer, photo centre and Squeeze Centre media streamer.

Its web interface lacks the polish of rivals such as Synology or QNap, having big chunky icons, dated styling and small text, but everything’s easy to find. There are three main sections, but one of those is a customisable Favourites tab that starts life empty. The Management button is the most immediately useful section of the interface, providing you with access to disk and volume management tools so that you can reformat the NAS’s hard disks and change your RAID settings. You can also re-run the NAS setup wizard, use the Account Management settings to create users and assign permissions, and configure local network and Dynamic DNS settings.

There’s also an Application Management screen and a separate tab for installed applications. These include services such as iTunes and UPnP media streaming, an integrated BitTorrent client, a basic web-accessible file server interface, an FTP server, and a management interface for backups to and from the device, including Apple Time Machine. The NAS also comes with Farstone’s Total Recovery Pro backup suite for Windows.
