Researchers from IOActive found a number of security vulnerabilities in popular models of Linksys consumer and small business routers. Some of the vulnerabilities allow attackers to launch a denial of service (DoS) attack, and others allow attackers to gain access to sensitive data. However, the worst flaw could allow attackers to gain complete control of the router, assuming they already have a valid login.
