Ever since the news regarding security issues within D-Link DIR-850L router broke out earlier this week, it has sparked interesting discussion among users given how it was distributed to TM and TIME Internet customers as part of their Internet package. Despite that, TM claimed that the number of users that were affected by the issues are quite small.
Specifically, only 200 UniFi users were actually affected according to a post on the company’s official Facebook page. Since there are more than one million UniFi subscribers at the moment, in theory that means only around 2% of UniFi users are truly at risk.
Nevertheless, the company has recommended customers to change the administrator password and turn off the remote management feature (even though this feature already been deactivated by default on TM’s unit) on their D-Link DIR-850L router – in line with steps that have been recommended by the router company itself.
Not to forget, TM has also previously mentioned that they will be looking into the new firmware update for D-Link DIR-850L although it could take up to two weeks for the analysis to be done. We’ll keep you updated once we receive further clarifications from the company.
