Uh oh. I have that old router too!

What is being demonstrated in their video is not a remote exploit. Launching an application targeting is not going to access a remote router.

Perhaps they have more that they are not showing in the video, but accessing a router from its LAN interface is not necessarily the same as accessing it from its WAN interface (which would be a requirement to be called a remote exploit). If an intruder already has access to your LAN, it is not your network anymore (whether they get root access to your perimeter router or not).
A well-regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.

When governments fear people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.
