    QNAP ransomware again

    Response to Qlocker Ransomware Attacks: Take Actions to Secure QNAP NAS | QNAP

    QNAP strongly urges that all users immediately install the latest Malware Remover version and run a malware scan on QNAP NAS. The Multimedia Console, Media Streaming Add-on, and Hybrid Backup Sync apps need to be updated to the latest available version as well to further secure QNAP NAS from ransomware attacks.

    Re: QNAP ransomware again

    I cannot over emphasize to friends and family the need to protect devices and identity. The bad guys are extremely good at hacking, stealing and hijacking systems.

    Thanks for posting Peter!

    Re: QNAP ransomware again

    This is one of the reasons I’m enjoying spinning discs on my newly acquired MSB Transport.

    Thanks Mike! I bought this one lightly used. It was MSB’s top of the line transport before they came out with their Reference and Select transports. The transport is asynchronous using MSB’s proprietary Pro I2S connection, which enables it to clock off the Femto 33 clock in my Select II DAC. The result is the best sound I’ve ever heard out of my system.

    Sorry for going off topic.

    Re: QNAP ransomware again

    For those running Roon Core on QNAP (which is not recommended anyway for typical underpowered NAS), I suggest using something else to run Roon Core before a fix is available:

    Vulnerability in Roon Server - Security Advisory | QNAP

    QNAP security advisory for Roon Server - #9 by crieke - QNAP/Synology NAS - Roon Labs Community

    Roon has some challenges: sound and security among them. Roon literally kills the sound of the NAIM NDX2 streamer in the store. Gives such “bite” to the leading transients. The NAIM app sounds soooooooo much better, ditto for Lumin App

    Browsing the Roon community forums, it looks as if the problem is only with QNAP. Several posts indicate that this is also related to the way some users chose to connect their NAS to the internet. It is not the first time either.

    As the OP said earlier, even though Roon has created versions that can run in a NAS, using a NAS to run Roon is not great. All NAS have a lower processing power than a regular computer which can create hiccups when upsampling and applying certain filters when running Roon server.

    QNAP only. The maintainer of the QNAP RoonServer package has been working on a fix.

    Re: QNAP ransomware again

    Is paying the ransom by QNAP included with this fix? I have serious to do with all those QNAP owners.

    I think a big problem is the end user, with the core always on. a category never shut down’s its core. For a good reason: we love playing music and some all the time.

    In the meantime while listening cores are computers, installed on Windows. Macs, linux based cores like rock or a NAS, everything is a computer with its security risk.
