FYI Netgear R6400 and R7000 models...stop using them!

https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/security/cert-warns-users-to-stop-using-two-netgear-router-models-due-to-security-flaw/

 

<<<Netgear R7000 (firmware version 1.0.7.2_1.1.93 and possibly earlier) and R6400 (firmware version 1.0.1.6_1.0.4 and possibly earlier) are vulnerable, but CERT said that other router models might be affected.>>>

The Netgear statement (included in the link above) is more expansive and worthy of a read, IMO.

I've never had great experience with netgear's products. This comes as no surprise to me.

Netgear is in the process of creating updated firmware for the affected routers.  I would suggest checking to see if there is an updated firmware for your router.  If the firmware is Alpha Netgear recommends that you install the Alpha version and check back later for the release version
