VPNFilter malware protection for FiOS routers

This just released malware targets routers. What make/model routers does FiOS use and has Verizon completed patching? What do customers need to do to verify their systems are protected?

Verizon uses several different models.

All by ActionTec.

Would need to see if this vulnerability affects them.

D-Link DIR-825, ActionTec MI424WR Rev. A - I (minus H), and Greenwave G1100 are the routers Verizon has provided with FiOS.

Unfortunately Verizon sends out updates and or patches when received from Greenwave Techonologies there are no sites for you to download as a stand alone.

Thanks Doug! That's a relief! We also use ActionTec G1100 Gateway.

There is no such router. This is the second poster with incorrect information 

the Fios Quantum Gateway Router G1100 is not an Actiontec Router.

fios Quantum Gateway Router is made by Greenwave Technology not Actiontec.

and Doug was the original poster.

The only legible identification on my router is "Fios Quantum Gateway". When I check the instruction manual, it says Verizon automatically handles all firmware updates, and there is no way for users to update. We need information from Verizon to clarify this.
