Netgear: 11 Home Router Models affected by Flaw, 3 patched

In-brief: A week after security experts at Carnegie Mellon’s CERT advised consumers about a serious security hole in home routers from the networking equipment maker NETGEAR, that firm has expanded the list of affected router models to 11, while offering official software patches for three of those models. Thousands of affected devices can be found online.
