Recently, it has been reported that the D-Link DIR-850L router, as illustrated above, has a new security vulnerability. It turned out that hackers can access your WiFi network without the necessary credentials, which can put your data at risk.
According to D-Link, this problem affects DIR-850L routers with hardware revision A. Routers with hardware revision B are not affected.
The DIR-850L is one of several routers offered by TM for its Unifi broadband subscription. However, it is not affected by this vulnerability problem because they are using a different variant with the B1 Hardware Revision.
