⚠ Vulnerable to Misfortune Cookie: Avoid/Replace ⚠

In December 2014 it was revealed that some models of TP-Link modem, including this model, are subject to hacking if they are running outdated firmware and if the remote access (ACL) is set to allow remote access. We documented this vulnerability on the Misfortune Cookie Vulnerability page.

Read more on the Misfortune Cookie as reported in http://www.kb.cert.org/vuls/id/561444.

NCF Recommendation for this modem:

  • Upgrade the Firmware to the lastest version if available.
  • Also, Deactivate ACL from Access ManagementACL.
  • If there is no firmware update for your version, replace the modem.
