Security update for all FRITZ!Box users

Reports in the media and user forums are currently speculating about additional possible routes used to attack the FRITZ!Box. Due to the ongoing investigation and to avoid imitations of the attacks, AVM cannot comment on these reports. As already announced, the attacks on the FRITZ!Box were all external and took place exclusively over port 443. Just hours after the attacks became known, AVM made a corresponding security update available for the FRITZ!Box. At the same time, all users were advised to perform this update, regardless of whether or not they had enabled remote access, as it provides the best protection against potential attacks. Tips and instructions on this update are presented at en.avm.de/guide/security
