ASUS Router Security Update

The latest firmware update for ASUS routers has been released and ASUS urges users to install it as it fixes 9 different security vulnerabilities including CVE-2023-28702, CVE-2023-28703, CVE-2023-31195, CVE-2022-46871, CVE-2022-38105, CVE-2022-35401, CVE-2018-1160, CVE-2022-38393, CVE-2022-26376. Two of the most severe of these flaws, as pointed out by BleepingComputer, are CVE-2022-26376 and CVE-2018-1160. The 2022 flaw is a critical memory corruption weakness in the Asuswrt firmware which could allow hackers to trigger denial-of-services states. The 2018 flaw is an almost five-year-old bug which can be exploited to gain arbitrary code execution and is caused by an out-of-bounds write Netatalk weakness.

ASUS urges users to install this update but has advised those that choose not to install it to disable WAN services. The affected routers include: GT6, GT-AXE16000, GT-AX11000 PRO, GT-AX6000, GT-AX11000, GS-AX5400, GS-AX3000, XT9, XT8, XT8 V2, RT-AX86U PRO, RT-AX86U, RT-AX86S, RT-AX82U, RT-AX58U, RT-AX3000, TUF-AX6000, and TUF-AX5400.
