RT-AX86U, TP-Link TL-WDR7660 and the NETGEAR Nighthawk R7800

Don't know if this should be in the security threads.

From what I gather mostly SQLi attacks? The Netgear and TP-Link had a couple. Any idea if this was acknowledged by the vendors, when it will be patched, or if it affects other models? Definitely another reason not to allow wan access lol.

ok so you are saying they acknowledged patches will come out? But what about if it affects other models and the eta? I'm specifically curious about Asus.

I meant the hacking competition was only 72 hours ago and you're already asking "where's my new firmware?".

oh i see lol. but i wasn't asking wheres my firmware. first of all i returned my asus router cause it was horribly unstable. but i was asking if they publicly acknowledged the issue and if it also affected older models which i still use. IS 3 days still too early for them to even acknowledge it? That's disheartening. Not even on twitter?
