ASUS RT-N56U Firmware version 3.0.0.4.342

»www.asus.com/Networking/RTN56U/

2013.02.08 update

Fixed
- Potential security issue from UPnP overflow
- Some wireless time control and parental control issues.

Add
- 3G/4G USB modem card setting in quick internet setup wizard

AiCloud
- Add delete button in upload file page.
- Fixed share link management bugs.
- Fixed file and folder rename bugs.

Importantly, this release says it addresses the UPNP exploits that have been in the spotlight recently, see »community.rapid7.com/community/i···ont-play

One would have to download the full source of 3.0.0.4.342, ~400MB, which they haven't posted yet, or decompose the firmware, or penetration test it, to find out what libraries they updated and verify if the vulnerabilities were fixed.

I would keep it simpler and just urge everyone not to run UPNP.
