MTS Routers /FBI router warning

While it won't hurt to power cycle the MAIN BellMTS box that provides routing (as long as one is not watching TV or on line at the time), does BellMTS have any thoughts on the FBI warning that routers should be turned off/on to reset the software because of potential malware infection?
Has the vendor (Pace /2 Wire)  provided any information that may say the units BellMTS supplies are impacted or not?
Last list of impacted units  I saw was more to routers from retail locations, but there was a note that some of the telco/cable supplied ones could also be at risk.

Something else to keep in mind is the direction to consumers is firmware should routinely be updated. Hopefully BellMTS will be pushing current firmware to all customers.
