QNAP going downhill
My first NAS was a Drobo. After this stuffed itself, I went for a QNAP. It has been much better than the Drobo. Until recently.
A non-functioning Drobo sometimes recovers by itself if left disconnected in a cool dark place for several months (seriously!) Mine actually did so, and it is now a backup for the QNAP - and powered off 99% of the time.
A few months ago, QNAP updates started breaking things. Sometimes they'd get fixed, then broken again (broken timestamps on files copied to n SMB connected drive for example.) Their huge failure in putting hard-coded credentials in the Hybrid Sync Backup is just the icing on the cake. QNAP seem to have abandoned any pretence of quality control.
The aforemention Hybrid Sync Backup arrived unasked for on my QNAP. Luckily for me, I decided to disable it just a few days agao as for me it is completely useless. I also don't actively use any of the internet-facing aspects of the QNAP, although it is well-nigh impossible to have a NAS which has no internet access at all: it is no use whatsoever if it isn't on a network, and unelss you are going to run more than one network, that network is going to be connected to the internet.
My QNAP is currently off, and to the best of my knowledge unaffected by this malware, but later today I'm going to disconnect my wired LAN from the router, and investigate thoroughly.
