    Critical Netgear Bug Impacts Flagship Nighthawk Router

    Dozens of routers are patched by Netgear as it snuffs out critical, high and medium severity flaws.

    Posted: 05 Mar 2020
    Netgear is warning users of a critical remote code execution bug that could allow an unauthenticated attacker to take control of its Wireless AC Router Nighthawk (R7800) hardware running firmware versions prior to 1.0.2.68. The warnings, posted Tuesday, also include two high-severity bugs impacting Nighthawk routers, 21 medium-severity flaws and one rated low.

    The critical vulnerability, tracked by Netgear as PSV-2019-0076, affects the company’s consumer Nighthawk X4S Smart Wi-Fi Router (R7800) first introduced in 2016 and still available today. Netgear is short on details tied to the vulnerability, only urging customers to visit its online support page to download a patch for the bug.

    The same R7800 model router is also vulnerable to a high-severity post-authentication command injection flaw, tracked as PSV-2018-0352. In this case, the Nighthawk (R7800) router is vulnerable when running firmware prior to version 1.0.2.60.
