For 2 days now i am getting warning from ESET about this malware, almost everytime i open new link in google chrome or when some apps or software of mine tries to connect to internet.

I have followed some steps recommended by microsoft how to get rid of malware, didnt work. It looks like it is not even inside of my pc, cause those Malware detectors did not find it.

I recently reinstalled my router firmware, did not help either.

Maybe you will know what to do. Attached one of the warnings.

Most likely you are using a compromised Mikrotik router. Please install the latest firmware and reset it to factory settings to resolve the issue. If that doesn't make any difference, theoretically it could be that the problem is at your ISP.

You can also run this test: hxxp://www.symantec.com/filtercheck/

If this tool finds that your router is not infected with the ssler plugin, your router may still be compromised by other threats or components of VPNFilter.

I will also add that VPNFilter malware only applies to Wi-FI routers to the best of my knowledge.

So if your connected to an Ethernet based router via an Ethernet cable, I think router based VPNFilter malware can be ruled out as a cause for the Eset detection. Likewise if your using Wi-FI via a WAP connected to an Ethernet router, router based malware can be ruled as the source.

Factory reset did not help, my router is in the list of affected ones, but since it is older version there is no new firmware to update.

I am using Wi-fi router and we get this notification on multiple computers, so the problem is either router or ISP.
