PSA: Mind your SOHO Routers!

Just a quick PSA notice -- does your your home router…

  • Have its firmware patched to the most currently available level?
  • Have its default admin password changed to a more secure unique one?
  • Use the strongest security settings possible to the needs you use it for?

If not, you may want to go back and double-check all those things.
