These three Netgear routers can be hacked: see what you need to do


Netgear has just release a new security vulnerability attack in three of its Nighthawk routers. According to Netgear, The vulnerability affects Nighthawk R6400, R7000, and R8000 routers and it allows unauthenticated web pages to pass form input directly to the command-line interface. A remote attacker can potentially inject arbitrary commands which are then executed by the system.

Since these vulnerabilities are now well known, Hackers only needs to lure users to a malicious website to carry out command injection. Until a fix is issued by Netgear, vigilance will be key when browsing the internet.

For now, Netgear only say that they are still investigating this issue and more details information will be share to user when the investigation is done but now, no news on the date when this issue will be fix.

If you are using any of the affected routers, you are advised to avoid them for now and If you can’t avoid it, then make sure you’re only clicking link from sites you know that are secure.
