The FBI advised to change the settings on the devices and protect the connection with more complex passwords.

On May 23, the US Justice Department announced the discovery of a network of devices infected by a group of hackers Fancy Bear. The FBI has suggested that information is collected through the network, including for new cyber attacks.
