Dear Asus router user: You’ve been pwned, thanks to easily exploited flaw

Quote:
An Ars reader by the name of Jerry got a nasty surprise as he was browsing the contents of his external hard drive over the weekend—a mysterious text file warning him that he had been hacked thanks to a critical vulnerability in the Asus router he used to access the drive from various locations on his local network.

"This is an automated message being sent out to everyone effected [sic]," the message, uploaded to his device without any login credentials, read. "Your Asus router (and your documents) can be accessed by anyone in the world with an Internet connection. You need to protect yourself and learn more by reading the following news article: http://nullfluid.com/asusgate.txt."

Batten down the hatches matey!

I don't have a USB port on my router, but I am checking other settings even though I don't use sync or cloud services.

Often a firmware update adds new features so a more frequent visit to the router settings might be warranted.

Thanks Bill,

Bill
