QNAP Network Attached Storage (NAS) devices are being targeted by hackers using brute force attacks. Hackers use previously compromised credentials and generate commonly used passwords to log into NAS devices.
How to protect yourself from these attacks?
You can protect your QNAP devices by creating strong passwords for your accounts. Here's how:
- In QTS, go to Options, then click Password Settings.
- Type your old password, then provide a new password. We recommend using a combination of numbers, upper and lower case letters, and special characters ($, #, etc.) to make a strong password.
- Type an email address for password recovery. To enable this feature, you need to configure SMTP settings in the Notification Center.
- Click Apply to save the changes.
