Hi @Bambino What can we do against such attacks... to protect our data and privacy?... Apart from stronger passwords and good Internet security...!

Going off that lady I should be ok but who really knows? I always do online banking using mobile data rather than home wifi but who is to say that is safe even though I change passwords regularly?

Meh. A Belkin from the last decade's bound to be riddled by now, I don't wonder... Perhaps time to replace it, eh?

Source your own router hardware, keep an eye on the vendor's site, apply all firmware updates and when it disappears from their product lineup ditch it as the chances are they are no longer going to maintain the firmware for it and that can leave you wide open.
