Netgear patches serious bug found in several popular routers

Netgear has fixed a high severity remote code execution (RCE) vulnerability in the Circle parental control service, on several of Netgear’s Small Offices/Home Offices (SOHO) routers.

What makes this vulnerability particularly interesting, is that even though it exists in a third-party component included in the firmware, it is just as damaging as a vulnerability that exists in the Netgear core’s firmware, because of the fact that Circle runs with root permissions.
