It has been reported by the FBI in America that Russian hackers have infected over 500,000 Routers world wide , multi manufacturers including Netgear, with a VPN Filter Virus, which is able to read and steal traffic data and make unit changes., They infer that a factory reset will disrupt the virus , and a robust password change will help. check the Netgear link below also

The XR500 is not on the list of netgear routers that are under attack from the VPNFilter malware, but following the advice from Netgear is a good thing to do anyway, never use the default password for a start.
