Routers open to attack

Hi All
Just seen this:
[quote="The Register"]
Vulnerability leaves Cisco small biz routers wide open to attack
Exploit code available, but no patch until end of the month
A number of Cisco networking products for small businesses contain critical vulnerabilities that could allow attackers to gain root access to the equipment, the networking giant has warned.
The affected products include the WAP4410N Wireless-N Access Point, the WRVS4400N Wireless-N Gigabit Security Router, and the RVS4000 4-port Gigabit Security Router, Cisco said in a security advisory issued late on Friday.
Note that these products are all branded Cisco and not Linksys.
...
According to Cisco's advisory, the vulnerabilities in all three products stem from an undocumented test interface that listens on TCP port 32764 on the affected devices.
...
There are no known workarounds for the vulnerabilities and Cisco has not released any patches as yet, although it promises it will ship fixes for all three routers by the end of January 2014. Until then, El Reg advises users of the affected products to cross their fingers.
