So far nothing I have is on the list.
My router is NetGear but I really use it as an Ethernet hub & wireless access point.
The difference is it still has some security features that a regular Ethernet hub doesn’t.
Connected to it is a Zoom Modem/Router which has it’s own security settings .

The only D-Link I have is a Skype phone adapter & it isn’t on the list either.

I have a D-Link and this scares me, I really hope there will be a firmware update soon, last thing I want is a vulnerable router. I wonder if it’s wise to release this kind of information before everything is patched. I guess it’s a matter of time before this is widely abused.

Anyone else with a vulnerable router of which the manufacturer did release an update yet?

My D-Link is on the list. Well no exactly but a similar model. But there isn’t much I can do about it. I’m sure we’ll never see a new firmware and there’s no point in buying a new router just for this. Who knows what else might be wrong with it down the line ?
DDWRT would have been a solution but it’s not supported.
