Don't use Linksys Routers
Back in 2012 I gave a talk at a conference titled Blended Threats and JavaScript. I demonstrated how anybody could design an internet worm that targeted common network devices like routers and turn them into a powerful botnet that is able to monitor traffic across all types of networks.

For the presentation, I demonstrated a vulnerability in the uber-popular Linksys WRT54GL router. Well, it's been almost a year since that presentation, so where are we now? In January of this year, Cisco (who owned Linksys until recently) published a patch to the router. Unfortunately, as the change log indicates, the patch only addressed an unrelated XSS issue. Today, the latest firmware version 4.30.16 (build 4) remains vulnerable to the attack, dubbed Cross-Site File Upload (CSFU).

seems to me there is no way other than serious encryption to prevent deep packet inspection

OK, so I know there is no such thing as "hack-proof" or "hacker-proof", just like there is nothing out there that is completely "water-proof", let's just say that in this article we're going to learn how to make your wireless router as "hacker-resistant" as possible.

haha, great answer, I love it. And it must be true too. Because nothing can be hidden to the eye of the universe or god, and god is all there is. So those with their consciousness all way up there can see and know everything they want.

All is in all and all is you, so stay true.
