    QNAP warned its clients about a recent ransomware assault of a new DeadBolt variety. All QNAP NAS devices should be running the most recent firmware. The attacks appear to be aimed at QNAP NAS systems...

    So the ransomware was attacking older firmware?

    Whoever has that kind of old firmware kinda deserves it lol

    And or exposing it to the internet. I know there is some functionality that requires it (like a VPN server) but it just seems like asking for trouble. I have a QNAP but it's JUST a NAS for me and I also block it from speaking outbound.

    The newest 5.x bricked mine. I was forced to roll back to the last 4.x that was released. So is it better to upgrade and guarantee a bricked system? Or leave the old firmware installed and run a small risk of infection?

    It's not a guarantee, I am running 5.x without issue. That's not to minimize your problem, but because it happened to you does not mean it's the rule and not the exception. I do steer clear of beta versions though.
