    The advice at this point is to discontinue use until a solution is found.

    Thx, read this over on DSLReports' Forums. Stuff like this keeps me buying a couple of Powerball tickets each week...

    I am curious to see how fast Netgear gets an official fix for this vulnerability. While some are complaining that Netgear is being rather non-responsive to complaints/queries, it doesn't mean they are not trying to create and test a fix/patch etc. Maybe by Wednesday we'll see Netgear officially acknowledge a fix/patch for this problem. In the meanwhile, I'll remain reserved on being overly critical. Btw, it is rather peculiar that Netgear would have certain items run at root. - Not what one might say is a safe practice.
