If you own a wireless manufactured by ASUS, then hackers might be able to jump onto your router whenever they please. According to new research by cybersecurity experts at Accuvant, ASUS routers have a glaring vulnerability that hasn't been fixed quite yet.
The vulnerability exploits a poorly-coded identification protocol for other routers. Hackers can exploit this protocol to gain the ability to remotely execute software through your router.
The only way a hacker would be able to remotely execute code to your router, however, is if they're connected to it.
That means the only way that a hacker could attack your router is if they were within a certain range.
