Important Security Update: New Threats Detected in D-Link Routers

D-Link Router Vulnerabilities: Protect Your Small Business from Cyber Threats

Hello, small business owners! I hope you’re doing well. I wanted to bring your attention to some important news that could impact your business’s cybersecurity. The U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) has identified two security flaws in D-Link routers that are being actively exploited. If you’re using these routers, it’s crucial to take action to protect your business.

The Security Flaws:

  1. CVE-2014-100005 – This vulnerability affects D-Link DIR-600 routers and allows attackers to change your router settings by hijacking an existing administrator session.
  2. CVE-2021-40655 – This flaw impacts D-Link DIR-605 routers and enables attackers to obtain your username and password by sending a forged HTTP POST request to the /getcfg.php page.

While the exact methods of exploitation aren’t fully known, federal agencies are urging everyone to apply the necessary updates by June 6, 2024. Additionally, the first flaw affects older D-Link models that are no longer supported, so if you’re using these, it’s time to replace them with newer, more secure devices.

New Concerns with DIR-X4860 Routers

There’s also a new warning about D-Link DIR-X4860 routers. Security experts found vulnerabilities that could let attackers remotely access your router and gain complete control. They have even demonstrated how this can be done through a proof-of-concept exploit.

D-Link has acknowledged this issue and is working on a fix. This vulnerability allows attackers to execute commands on your router without needing authentication, which could be very dangerous.

Ivanti Endpoint Manager Mobile (EPMM) Issues

In related news, there’s a new vulnerability in Ivanti EPMM that could allow a local user to bypass restrictions and execute commands on the system. This is due to inadequate validation in the software update process. Ivanti has released updates to fix this issue, along with two other vulnerabilities that could allow unauthorized access to data.
