    thanks for the link, so it appears to be poor reporting. And from the different media agencies that picked it up it appears to have been a vulnerability on the Asus side, from the way I’ve been reading it, it looks like certain routers were passing information to Asus Servers and that’s where the leak happened? Not on any actual individual device?

    Who knows? I've seen the output of spam generators make more sense than that article.

    Locking this thread, because duplicate, unrelated to Asuswrt-Merlin, and highly likely to be bogus based on the poorly written article.
