NAT Slipstreaming Router Attack

Is plusnet doing anything about the latest router attack?; which basically makes any firewall null and void.

Are plusnet even aware of the issue?
When can we expect a router update/patch?

Re: NAT Slipstreaming Router Attack

@gtx_viper  Welcome to the forum.

From my reading this is only applicable to devices that support ALG. I don't know but suspect that Plusnet hubs don't. I quote from  https://portswigger.net/daily-swig/nat-slipstreaming-hack-tricks-firewalls-and-routers

I do have control on my Business Smarthub 6 but it is switched off by default
