ASUS support

It is important to note that the CVE-2024-3912 vulnerability also affects ASUS routers that are no longer supported by the manufacturer. These models are:

  • DSL-N10_C1;
  • DSL-N10_D1;
  • DSL-N10P_C1;
  • DSL-N12E_C1;
  • DSL-N16P;
  • DSL-N16U;
  • DSL-AC52;
  • DSL-AC55

As they do not receive new updates, TWCERT/CC recommends that users of these devices replace the models with more recent versions – thus avoiding future problems with the security of their information.

ASUS also recommends that users ensure that their routers have the latest available firmware version downloaded, checking their device regularly to avoid becoming outdated. They also highlight that it is important that your password for the wireless network is different from the router administration page.
