    I am with BT and over last week I had an automated call (American Accent) stating that it has been reported my router was infected and asking me to push button 1 to go through to customer services to get router replaced, which I dually ignored as I had only just put my Fritz!Box back in the day before for testing.

    Then over the weekend I  received a second call, same voice (automated) stated if I did not press button 1 for customer support/service (I forget which) then my line would be turned off in 24 hours, needles to say, internet is still up  and working as expected.

    So be warned, in UK, fake/spam call about infected routers and ISP disconnects are the latest phishing attacks to get your details/money (I assume) ?

    Enjoy ;-)
