1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

QNAP NAS’s - malware attack.

    Huh? My QNAP is not visible to the internet, I am running no services on it that requires it to do so. I am not blocking anything to the QNAP per se, I just have a zero trust policy and ensure whatever internet access router I have only allows in>out initiated connections. Zero incoming Udp/tcp allowed, default drop rule first in my list :)

    I think you need to qualify your statement? :)

    If your QNAP is infected then it will dial out to the Malware Command and Control Server, any related inbound connections will then be allowed through your Firewall - otherwise you'd be unable to do stuff like surf the web.

    Unsolicited inbound connections will be blocked. Solicited connections will be allowed out and then there is a path back into your network.

    How likley you are to get the infection onto the QNAP is an unknown, in your case highly unlikely, but not impossible.

    I suggest you pcap your NAS and you'll see it's making outbound connections to things you didn't expect. Having a rule that blocks incoming traffic is OK but it doesn't stop your NAS making outbound connections.

    I'm using a Palo Alto firewall at home and here's a screenshot of my outbound NAS traffic with GitHub as an example:
