Netgear Routers Hundreds of Thousands Compromised
Netgear Routers have a flaw that exposes them to a password bypass compromise. There is a huge number of routers affected, so if you have any Netgear routers, it is a good bet you have issues. The Netgear routers can only be compromised if remote management is enabled. CourseVector’s security team always suggests, just for general security, that remote management of any brand router be disabled where possible. According to Netgear’s posts, it does not appear as though all models have a patch available and they are suggesting simply disabling remote management.
