D-Link fixes router flaws following public disclosure


Softpedia - (International) D-Link released a firmware update for its DIR-820L router that fixed a flaw that allowed attackers to gain root access to routers through cross-site request forgery (CSRF) attacks by tricking victims into visiting malicious Web pages, allowing unauthorized access to domain name system (DNS) configuration. The company will release updates for other vulnerable routers by March 10.
