“With any internet-facing devices, it is important for organizations to be aware of patches and updates available for their systems. Attackers are always searching for vulnerable internet-facing devices and with any known vulnerability, it will be added to their exploit arsenal to use against organizations. These routers have the patch available to reduce the risk of being attacked by this vulnerability.
Organizations need to implement the patch as soon as possible using their security program’s change management procedures. If organizations fail to implement these patches, they increase their risk of attack and possible data breach of their network and systems.”
