Wi-Fi routers: More security risks than ever
LAS VEGAS -- More major brand-name Wi-Fi router vulnerabilities continue to be discovered, and continue to go unpatched, a security researcher has revealed at Defcon 21.
Jake Holcomb, a security researcher at the Baltimore, Md.-based firm Independent Security Evaluators and the lead researcher into Wi-Fi router vulnerabilities, said that problem is worse than when ISE released its original findings in April.
The latest study continues to show that the small office and home office Wi-Fi routers are "very vulnerable to attack," Holcomb said.
