There’s a new wireless router exploit that recently surfaced exposing millions of wireless routers used in businesses and homes. While it looks like the risk is low if it will effect you, it does pose an issue.

Your computer will normally automatically download security updates and notify you. Your cell phone will normally download security updates and notify you. So will many other devices. But your wireless router will not. You normally have to log into your router – a deliberate action, to check for updates and implement them.

I have, without a doubt, administered at least three security updates on each of my wireless routers in the past three months.

The lesson, nothing is automatic. What vulnerabilities lie within your network that you don’t know about.
