Netgear has yet to fix a critical vulnerability uncovered by a hacker in several of its home Wi-Fi router models.
A security researcher using the online alias “Acew0rm” discovered the flaw, which allows attackers to gain complete control of affected routers with minimal effort. Last week, the researcher released the details of a simple exploit, or code that takes advantage of the vulnerability.
But here is the beautiful part folks...To help ameliorate the vulnerability while the vendor works on new firmware, the vendor suggests using the SAME VULNERABILITY to kill the service that is causing all of the trouble...Very meta...Where is Leo Dicaprio in all of this eh?
