  • In November 2018, D-Link became aware of a 3rd Party security researcher that accused the DIR-860L Hardware Rev. Bx and DIR-818LW Series Hardware Revision Ax consumer routers of a remote command injection vulnerability. After an investigation, this vulnerability is only accessible via the local-network (LANside) of the router and not directly from the Internet (WAN-side) since it requires access to the web browser configuration of the router.
