In November 2018, D-Link becamea aware of a 3rd Party security researcher that accused the DIR-860L Hardware Rev. Bx and DIR-818LW Series Hardware Revision Bx consumer routers of a remote command injection vulnerability.


After an investigation, this vulnerability is only accessable via the local-network (LAN-side) of the router and not directly from the internet (WAN-side) since it requies access to the web browswer configuration of the router.
