Linksys Remote Admin Enabled

A neRemote Adminw and dangerous vulnerability is being reported against certain Linksys routers. Apparently, if the “Classic” interface is being used instead of the newer “Smart” interface, Remote Administration is enabled whether or not it has been enabled in the user interface. This is obviously pretty bad since it will give anyone on the internet an opportunity to login to your router and change the settings without your knowledge. If you’re relying on the fact that Remote Administration has not been enabled. better check now.
