Security Alert: Malware Distribution Points

Luma not only improves your wifi coverage and speeds, but also improves your home's network security.   Luma is constantly monitoring your home's network traffic and is able to identify and alert when threats or threat-like behaviors are detected.

There are several types of alerts that home user may encounter. Below is an overview of the alert notifications that you might see should your home come under attack.


Malware Distribution Points


Malware distribution points are websites or systems which have been identified as places where malware is deployed and/or updated.  Malware may be deployed in parts from various sites to avoid detection or in whole from a singular site.  Luma helps alert and protect from these harmful sites.

If Luma security blocking is enabled, this will disrupt communication with the malware distribution point. However, many of these criminal systems are very robust and build several layers of redundancy. It is best that you review the compromised device and confirm that the system is up to date with respect to security patches. You should also review your anti-virus settings an make sure that they too are up to date.
