Precautions Against Latest Vulnerability

Firstly apologies for cross posting - got the wrong forum first time!
On my WD MyCloudMirror Gen 1, which cannot be updated to OS5 and sits on my LAN, I have taken the following precautions:

  • passwords on all users - even those with low-privilege user accounts
  • disabling ftp server - (I understand that the FTP server would allow people to upload and then run files using the default FTP passwords or anonymous remote access with write access enabled).
  • disabling cloud access
  • all backed up
    But from the management app I can still use the Web File Viewer app to see the files. Does the WFV actually communicate via the web, or is it just a fancy name from browsing the NAS over the LAN?

Hi @Davy,

Please refer below link to check My Cloud OS 5: Firmware Availability and Supported Devices:

Hope it helps!!

Thanks Keerti, yes confirms that OS5 is not available for my MyCloudMirror Gen 1
