Security researchers from Check Point Software Technologies recently issued an alert about a critical vulnerability found on select residential and small business routers. An estimated 200 models and over 12 million routers are affected. Pakedge routers are not affected by this vulnerability. Misfortune Cookie is a critical vulnerability that allows an intruder to remotely take over a residential gateway device and use it to attack the connected devices and allows the attacker to remotely take over the device with administrative privileges. Many Pakedge clients use a variety of brands of networking equipment. It is possible that they may be at risk.
