ASUS warns of critical remote authentication bypass on 7 routers

ASUS has released a new firmware update that addresses a vulnerability impacting seven router models that allow remote attackers to log in to devices.

The flaw, tracked as CVE-2024-3080, is an authentication bypass vulnerability allowing unauthenticated, remote attackers to take control of the device.

The flaw impacts multiple ASUS router models, but not all will be getting security updates due to them having reached their end-of-life.

Finally, ASUS announced an update to Download Master, a utility used on ASUS routers that enables users to manage and download files directly to a connected USB storage device via torrent, HTTP, or FTP. The newly released Download Master version addresses five medium to high-severity issues concerning arbitrary file upload, OS command injection, buffer overflow, reflected XSS, and stored XSS problems.
