A cybersecurity researcher found a Netgear Zero-Day vulnerability which allows full takeover of about 79 Netgear router models.
“The specific flaw exists within the httpd service, which listens on TCP Port 80 by default,” according to the ZDI report, which covers the bug’s presence in the R6700 series Netgear routers. “The issue results from the lack of proper validation of the length of user-supplied data prior to copying it to a fixed-length, stack-based buffer.”
“This vulnerability affects firmwares as early as 2007 (WGT624v4, version 2.0.6),” he said in his post. “Given the large number of firmware images, manually finding the appropriate gadgets is infeasible. Rather, this is a good opportunity to automate gadget detection.”
Affected router models
According to Nichols, 79 Netgear router models and 758 firmware images contain the vulnerable HTTPD daemon.
Recently it was found that Plex had a vulnerability that allowed hackers to do a full system takeover.
If hackers are able to exploit this vulnerability they could execute code to gain access to all files, create backdoors and even move to other devices on the network.
Update to the latest version
Make sure that you are not vulnerable, log into your plex server and update right away.

Many critical vulnerabilities found in Virtual Network Computing (VNC). The VNC software was found to have 37 different memory corruption vulnerabilities and many of these could result in remote code execution. The researchers at Kaspersky said around 600,000 web-accessible servers use the code.
Kaspersky researchers wrote in an analysis of the bugs for ICS CERT, released Friday.
“The prevalence of such systems in general, and particularly ones that are vulnerable, is a significant issue for the industrial sector as potential damages can bring significant losses through disruption of complex production processes,”
Kaspersky found many critical vulnerabilities in VNC client , but also on the server-side of the system which can be exploited after password authentication. Kaspersky said there are two main attack vectors:
