Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 1.0.8 Build 20200426 rel.65338

So I saw these article, exposing how hundreds of routers are vulnerable to simple security related threads.

 

I searched for my AX50 model and it seems it was tested on the "experiment".

 

I would like to know what measures are being taken by tp link in order to fix these, also, if the hard-coded keys are leakable on this router model/firmware (and if they can be updated/fixed), and what measures can be taken by common users to mitigate possible security attacks.

 

On my side, I have already disabled UPnP, I use long strong not default passwords, remote management is disabled, fimware is always up-to-date and I use a MAC filter (don't know if these makes any difference tbh)

For individuals considering new router or current router owner, I recommend visiting OpenWRT or DD-WRT websites and review if the router is compatible with either of these open source firmware. It is unfortunate, that not all routers are on the compatibility list.
