An unpatched bug in the firmware of Intel Puma 6 chipsets — used within several models of gigabit cable modems — is causing latency issues, and may also be used to knock devices offline via a gentle packet stream.
A severe security flaw in the implementation of the SNMP protocol allows an attacker to take over at least 58 cable modem models, according to a team of researchers.
Security researchers from Neseso are sounding the alarm on a vulnerability they've discovered in Samsung smart TVs that Samsung declined to fix.
Linksys says that 25 router models are vulnerable to remote hacking and could be taken over by an attacker if users still use their default admin credentials.

A particular TP-Link router model will spew out its admin password in cleatext to anyone that sends an SMS message to the router's SIM card with a particular script inside, according to German security researcher Jan Hörsch.
Scientists have developed a new type of material that could be used in the future to create self-healing electronics, such as smartphones, batteries, speakers, robotics, and others.
Hackers are using a combination of low and high-tech attacks to make ATMS spit out cash, according to Kaspersky researcher Igor Soumenkov, who presented this novel attack at this year's Security Analyst Summit, taking place in St. Maarten this week.
A "smart" dildo with an embedded video camera, sold under the name of Siime Eye and created and assembled by US manufacturer Svakom, contains a slew of security flaws that allow attackers to watch video streams without authorization and even go as far as to replace firmware and completely take over the device.
A year-long study revealed on Friday that laptop manufacturers seriously overstate their claims on a device's battery life, sometimes by hours, not minutes.
Work on DDR5 (Double Data Rate 5), a standard for computer memory chips, has already begun, JEDEC, a standards body for the microelectronics industry, said on Thursday.
Yesterday, at the BlackHat Asia 2017 security conference, researchers from cyber-security firm Cylance disclosed two vulnerabilities in the firmware of Gigabyte BRIX small computing devices, which allow an attacker to write malicious content to the UEFI firmware.
A new tool released on GitHub last week can help paranoid sysadmins keep track of whenever someone plugs in or disconnects an USB-based device from high-value workstations.
A new attack on smart TVs allows a malicious actor to take over devices using rogue DVB-T (Digital Video Broadcasting — Terrestrial) signals, get root access on the smart TV, and use the device for all sorts of nasty actions, ranging from DDoS attacks to spying on end users.
