    "Vulnerabilities - Due in large part to an exposed $root share on the NVRAM
    for Samba service, which was discovered in March of this year by another researcher, on almost all of the above models that have enabled AiCloud service, the end users will find themselves exposed to multiple methods of attack and several dangerous remote exploits," Lovett wrote. The Linux-based routers also expose credentials in clear text.

    Once an attacker enters legitimate credentials on the RT-N16 and N16R routers, they are able to control the admin console on the LAN side and eventually control traffic moving through the local network, sniff packets or crash systems.

    He recommends disabling all UPnP services until a patch is available from
    ASUS, and remove all remote access to the router for administration. Default passwords for the router and AiCloud services should also be changed.

    yeah.. I never buy a router to use the stock firmware. it usually has issues, like this one.

    So, with that said, dd-wrt and tomato both work on this device making it actually awesome. :)
