State-owned Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) has advised all its broadband users to change their default password of the modems as some of its modems were affected by a malware attack earlier this week.
The malware attack has impacted around 2,000 broadband modems and it has affected those who have not changed the default password “admin”. The malware is basically changing the passwords of the modems and users were unable to login.

“The situation has been addressed to a great extent. We are advising customers that they should immediately change their passwords, and they should not be worried about using broadband once they have done that,” Anupam Shrivastava, BSNL Chairman, told PTI. He further added that BSNL call centres were proactively reaching out to users to not only alert them about the attack but also advise them on precautionary measures.
Previously, the company has introduced a new broadband plan which offers 10GB data every day at just Rs 249 per month. Apart from this, users will also get unlimited calling but not in the day rather users can make free calls only after 9 PM in the night till 7 AM in the morning. However, you get free unlimited calling on Sundays. The internet speed you get under this plan is 2MB per second.
