myZyXELcloud-Agent - enabling itself?

Post by josephlindley » Mon Jun 26, 2017 10:43 am

Hi,

I have recently set up a NAS520 (replacing my NSA325 which committed NAS-icide; it just died after 5 years).

I have uninstalled the myZyXELcloud-Agent, however each time I do that it reinstalls itself, and starts up several python scripts which max out the CPU. These are zyxel_file_monitor and zyxel_thumb_creator.

Any suggestions on how to stop the package from automatically reinstalling/starting itself?!

Thanks
Joe

Nice feature, huh? You can disable it by installing MetaRepository, which can be used to install Tweaks, which has an option to disable the installer for myZyXELcloud-agent.

Totally sweet feature, yeah :)

Ok, got that sorted.

I did also manage to find the option to disable the thumbnail creation, however the zyxel backdoor is inherently really creepy!! :roll: :twisted:

Thanks
