D-Link remote access vulnerabilities remain unpatched
D-Link routers have several unpatched vulnerabilities, the worst of which could allow an attacker to gain total control over a device, according to a systems engineer in Canada.
Peter Adkins, who does security research in his free time, released details of the flaws on Thursday. Adkins said in a phone interview that he has been in intermittent contact with D-Link since Jan. 11 on the issues, but the company has not indicated when it might patch.
“I believe it’s probably better for the end user to know that these exist than be completely in the dark for months on end while the vendor prepares patches,” he said.
D-Link officials did not have an immediate comment.
