And no, the "free market" doesn't enforce this; otherwise we wouldn't see so many negligent firms.

HOW does the attacker take over the router?
And what about the PCs or laptops in the home network?
(3 WinXP, 1 Win7) How or can they be affected?
How does this affect my home network?
Or is this just a "take control of the internet service" on it?
I need to know what to do or not do with it. Article is a little vague
I have never done any firmware updates on it. lol /bad girl
Bad news is, I cant afford to replace it right now. Extra money buys food, not tech stuff Cisco needs to MAN UP and protect its customers! Been a crap company since they bought it.
Thanks for any info in advance and PCW please keep us updated.

These settings are so simple, a child could do it, and if you are not capable of setting the router up, to protect your computers, or network, then you should not be running a network at all.
These routers are very old, and as other have pointed out, they are mostly being used to repeat new wireless network, using a third party software. I have two of these, the are fantastic dust collectors in my storage area.
