Researcher warns about critical flaw in D-Link routers

Quote:
A security flaw in D-Link's DIR-300 and DIR-600 routers could allow remote attackers to inject execute arbitrary shell commands via a simple POST request without being authenticated to the device or by tricking the routers' owners into sending the request themselves, warns security researcher Michael Messner.

Does it cost a lot of money to update a router to block infections? I'm trying to understand why a company would refuse to do such a thing when proof is given to them.
