Most Popular Home Routers Have ‘Critical’ Flaws

Common devices from Netgear, Linksys, D-Link and others contain serious security vulnerabilities that even updates don’t fix.

A security review of 127 popular home routers found most contained at least one critical security flaw, according to researchers.

The “Home Router Security Report” (PDF) by Peter Weidenbach and Johannes vom Dorp—both from the German think tank Fraunhofer Institute–found that not only did all of the routers they examined have flaws, many “are affected by hundreds of known vulnerabilities,” the researchers said.
