If you use the following D-Link routers, you can get hacked

D-Link has revealed that 8 of their routers in the small/home office “DWR” range are vulnerable to complete takeover by hackers.

If you have the following D-Link routers, you will need to replace them because D-Link is not going to issue a software patch:

  • DWR-140
  • DWR-512
  • DWR-640
  • DWR-712
  • DWR-912
  • DWR-921

If you have the following D-Link routers, a software patch will be issued soon (hopefully before end of this month) to close the security vulnerability:

  • DWR-111
  • DWR-116

As your router is the gateway to the Internet and internal network for your home/office, it can compromise the security of every device and computers in your home/office if it is taken over by hackers.

Błażej Adamczyk of the Silesian University of Technology in Poland discovered the vulnerabilities in May and had informed D-Link about it in September. He has given D-Link a month to fix the security vulnerability before he will disclose them publicly.

So, make sure you either replace the routers or update the software.

Full technical information of the vulnerability can be found here. If you need advice on how to secure your home/office, please feel free to contact us.
