That's why I use DDWRT.
DDWRT is Open Source Third Party Firmware. Now, I am not stating that DDWRT is not professionally written, I am only
stating that if there exists any chance of an vulnerability, that vulnerability now exists after flashing the
Firmware of the claimed supported Router with DDWRT. Reason being, DDWRT may not be fully compatable with claimed
supported Router because of technical reasons due to specific manufacture design by the companies Router.
Besides, all the Routers listed with vulnerabilities by the US_CERT Cyber Security Bulletin SB11-332 that was provided
in the link of this Thread in Post #1, all but two of the listed Routers vulnerabilities were in regards to
The UPnP IGD Implementation (Universal Plug and Play Internet Gateway Device Implementation).
The simple and safe remidy for this would be to: Disable Universal Plug and Play in the Router.
