@BvdRee I like the Twitter idea, but we need a hashtag as well. How about #NetgearBrokenSecurity?

Or #NetgearSevereSecurityFlaw ...

I don't understand why Netgear does not communicate at all. My (other brand) NAS receives updates regularly, even today.

Go for it.  I haven't heard a word or read anything. Anyone?

Any chance we can get the government (CERT=Sponsored by Homeland Security) to make the company issue a 'safety recall' the way they did for the note 7, or for other dangerously faulty products?

Re: R7000 Vulnerability Note VU#582384

ack all they want...  I want to know if they are working on it and are going to continue to support these devices...  Or are the owners of these devices going to be tossed to the curb?

The article states: "NETGEAR is investigating and will update this article once we have more information."  So, I'd say they're working on it.

This backdoor (or no door) was reported to Netgear four months ago. Shocking.

R7300 was listed as an affected model, should i assume my R7300DST will be patched as well-- it's the same as the R7300 + a "Dead Spot Terminator"(Separate device)

the beta firmware is available but still readycloud broken and email schedule failing most of the time.

 

Still the firmware is not complete.

My understanding is that the only R7300 is the R7300DST.

Re: R7000 Vulnerability Note VU#582384

Well, by now most of you have seen the official Netgear status of this issue.  They've released beta versions of a production fix for several models.  Have any of you folks installed the beta versions and if so what have you experienced? Thank you.

I'm running it on my R7000 which I'm currently using just as an AP and it's working fine for me.

 

Others have also installed it. See e.g. https://community.netgear.com/t5/Nighthawk-WiFi-Routers/The-last-straw-new-vulnerability-for-R7000-R...

Re: R7000 Vulnerability Note VU#582384

I see Netgear has released a beta fix for this.  I have a Mac mini which uses OSX.  Netgear Router R7000 AC 1900.  Instructions say to download it and save it to my desktop and then follow instructions.  I downloaded the fix and I get a message that says Safari can't open it and it advises me to download an app that will.  ????  What app would that be?

Thanks

@Richard284
The file you downloaded is a firmware file. Ignore what Safari told you, and continue to follow the instructions on http://kb.netgear.com/000036453/R7000-Firmware-Version-1-0-7-6-Beta. Basically you log in your router via Web interface and use it to update its firmware.
