For you Asus Router users - watch it ;
ASUS routers contain a vulnerability that turns users into admins, researcher Joshua Drake says.
The boxes could be exploited by malicious local users, but not those on the wider internet, re-rerouting all users on the network to malicious sites, among other attacks.
Drake wrote in an advisory that several popular models were affected including the RT-N66U
and RT-AC66U.
"Currently, all known firmware versions for applicable routers are assumed vulnerable," Drake said.
ASUS has been contacted for comment.

Re: For you Asus Router users - watch it

Just a worry if you have mischievous local users.
I'm the only user so hopefully OK.
Let's be careful out there !
