Router manufacturer TP-Link recently fixed a vulnerability in a discontinued line of routers that if exploited could have been used to execute code on the device.
Researchers at Senrio, a firm that specializes in IoT security, uncovered a logic vulnerability in a configuration service present in TP-Link’s PTWR841N V8 router models.
Researchers with the firm discovered a similar vulnerability, last summer, that also affected a smart device’s configuration service. That issue, a faulty software component in more than 100 models of D-Link WiFi cameras, exposed the devices to remote attacks.
