Researchers found a vulnerability in TP-Link and other routers that could be used to launch DDoS-attacks

The bug can be fixed through a firmware update, but so far only one manufacturer has released it.

Cybersecurity startup SentinelOne found a vulnerability in the NetUSB module. It is manufactured by KCodes. TP-Link, D-Link, Tenda, Netgear, EDiMAX, and Western Digital use the module in millions of routers worldwide.

The vulnerability allows remote control of devices connected to routers, mining and launching DDoS attacks.

The bug can be fixed with an update, but only Netgear has released a new version of the firmware so far.

Hackers can exploit the vulnerability and steal data exchanged by users in the local network, as well as prevent them from accessing sites and inserting ads into pages in browsers.
