Thus, once you connected your device to the latter—note that you have to do this process on each WiFi network which you want to change the DNS values of — , just go in the WiFI settings and long press on “MyPrettyWiFi”.
D-Link won’t patch a critical unauthenticated command-injection vulnerability in its routers that could allow an attacker to remotely take over the devices and execute code.
CITL researchers studied publicly available firmware images and evaluated them for the presence of standard security features such as the use of non-executable stacks, Address Space Layout Randomization (ASLR) and stack guards, which prevent buffer overflow attacks.
Here's the thing: The servers that route your internet requests don't understand domain names like . It turns out that my ISP-supplied router, which brings me internet, TV, and phone service, does not permit me to change the DNS settings.
An Airbnb "superhost" has been arrested and jailed after a guest discovered a camera hidden inside an internet router placed in the bedroom. The Barker Family from New Zealand were staying in Cork they spotted a hidden camera in the living room of the house.
Also in March, an Airbnb guest in Miami found hidden cameras in his room, while in April, a New Zealand family discovered that their Airbnb host in Ireland was recording – and also livestreaming – footage of them.
The hacker then connects to a real access point using a different wireless card, effectively funneling all of the information through their system before moving it along to the second network.
For the past three months, a cybercrime group has been hacking into home routers --mostly D-Link models-- to change DNS server settings and hijack traffic meant for legitimate sites and redirect it to malicious clones.
Sivan Rauscher, co-founder and CEO of the Israeli-based B2B startup SAM Seamless Network, said in a telephone interview, that hackers target IoT devices because they are easy to hack: As more of our daily lives become more connected and dependent on the web, the sheer number of devices and endpoints in your home makes likely it likely that some of these attacks will succeed.

A 2017 Eero report with anonymized data collected from “hundreds of thousands” of its routers shows a glimpse into what information can be gleaned: Charts showing times of day users are most active (Sunday between 9 p.m. and 10 p.m.), and a list of the top 40 devices connected to Eero networks (topped by the iPhone, iPad, and Sonos speakers).
Major disruption The draft law, called the Digital Economy National Program, requires Russia's ISPs to ensure that it can operate in the event of foreign powers acting to isolate the country online.
As you might already know, you need an IP address to connect to the internet. To be able to access another computer on the internet, a device will need to connect to the router and use the router’s routable IP address.
A good VPN will allow you to connect to multiple devices (generally 3-5) on a single license. Installing VPN on your router will save you money by allowing you to connect all devices with a single subscription.
With the advent of the Internet of Things (IoT) and Smart Home devices, our environments are becoming more connected however this comes with the compromise of security. So what is the best way to secure your network when using IoT or Smart Home devices?
"The MikroTik RouterOS device allows users to capture packets on the router and forward the captured network traffic to the specified Stream server," the researcher said, adding that ports 20, 21, 25, 110, and 143 appear to be of the most interest to the eavesdroppers.
There are few options available that are truly "free" (open-source), affordable, and provide suitable processing power to run "secure" operating systems like Qubes-Whonix, because specific hardware requirements like VT-d and VT-x are necessary for compatibility with future software releases.
This article focuses on a VPN router that likely has hardware acceleration enabled (the Asus RT-AC86U 2018), and tests various configurations to make sure that the feature is working.
