Default Serious D-Link router security flaws may never be patched

This report is from Sophos' Naked Security:

Serious D-Link router security flaws may never be patched – Naked Security
Stop me if you’ve heard this one before.

In May, Polish researcher Błażej Adamczyk of the Silesian University of Technology contacted D-Link to tell it he’d discovered a trio of important security flaws affecting eight of its Wi-Fi routers.

According to Adamczyk, D-Link replied two weeks later to say that two of the products would be patched in due course but that the remaining six were considered end of life (EOL), the implication being that they wouldn’t be updated...

...Our security advice is simple: when router makers say end of life, some of them really mean it.
