Tripwire’s Craig Young recently analyzed the security provided by the most popular wireless routers used in many small and home offices (SOHO). His research found that 80% of Amazon’s top 25 best-selling SOHO wireless router models have security vulnerabilities, and 34% of the top 50 best-selling routers have publicly documented exploits that make it relatively simple for cyberattackers to compromise the devices.
Is this just the tip of the vulnerable router iceberg?
Listen to episode 124 of our Security Slice podcast and Craig Young discuss these vulnerabilities in depth, the precautions consumers should take to protect their routers, and why bad company publicity leads might contribute good security.
