Multiple security holes discovered in Linksys routers
« on: April 21, 2017, 02:45:50 PM »

Linksys, which was told about the flaws in January, has put out an advisory recommending owners turn off the guest Wi-Fi account until a patch is available, and reminding them (facepalm!) to change the default admin password.

As with every router vulnerability, a key issue is, “How many owners will hear about the issue and bother to update?” The patch will be a great thing when it arrives, but only if it is applied.
