Linksys makes consumer grade routers, but many businesses also use them to connect to the corporate network. That may not be a problem in most cases, but a security consultant discovered 10 total bugs in more than 20 Linksys "Smart" Wi-Fi routers. Six of the vulnerabilities can be exploited by an unauthenticated attacker. The vulnerable routers include:
Until a fix is available, Linksys recommends enabling automatic updates, disabling Wi-Fi guest networks if they're not in use, and changing the default administrator password. Those are all things you should be doing with any device, even those without identified vulnerabilities. I would even recommend disabling the ability to remotely administer the device.
