As the router is not a computer, you don't install 3rd party app to it or close source therefore there is no direct risk unless you go install unknown firmware that someone may inject such malicious code to peek the router activities.


Does this router have the meltdown or spectre vulnerabilities ah? I understand the CPU is using ARM rite?

Most router use some kind of linux/similar type of code and source code mostly available. So lots of 3rd party software actually installd with the router code. This is why router also affected by those secuiity bugs announced.

This is your first device in home so it is very important to secure it as this is your first line of protection.

First thing you should do is always stopping router from broadcasting your SSID. This prevent someone try to connect and hack into it easily.

Please do show the full page as it is not 2018 but 2015.
As for the download on next item is dated 08/14/2015.
Most likely this is an older version .




For DLink equipment refer to this link;

https://sg.mydlink.com/download#

There are full list of routers with firmware, etc.

Did anyone managed to update successfully? Tried yesterday but always "Update Failed". So i go Dlink Technical Support (US) and gotten Security Advisement (1.20B01 BETA) Dated 02/28/18. Followed the 2-steps update (meaning must flash 2 .bin files) with no problems, also all my settings remains. In the Status column, it shows Firmware Version : 1.20 Tue 28 Nov 2017. Lastly, i tried one last time DIR868LA1_FW121SHC.bin but still "Update Failed".

Cannot be 2015, since v1.09SHC build is already March 2017, definitely will be late 2017 or 2018 firmware because i upgrade from v1.09SHC to v1.13 (Beta) to now currently v1.20B1(Beta) the firmware build date shown is Nov 2017 and I cannot even downgrade back. I directly use FTP to Dlink online server, v1.20B1 Beta is the latest security patch firmware.

Cannot be v1.21SHC is older than v1.09SHC (which is the latest currently), it don’t make any sense, v1.21SHC update fail though...

Yup for some reason v1.21SHC flash fail too, I think the file is corrupt, they did state include login guide file, it’s also not there.

Dlink firmware page is all over the place and show different firmware on different Dlink website for the same router. 🙄

Just spoken to DLink technical support regarding DIR-868L firmware matters.

For Starhub subscribers, it is recommend to use only 1.09SHC version.

Whereas for other providers global version 1.20B01 is fine.

There is no version 1.21.

For your info.

Oic, thanks for the update, so it show thar Dlink staff are sleeping, making a typo in the date but what about the fail update when we try to upgrade it from either v1.09SHC or v1.20 (beta), fail to upload v1.21SHC firmware. I think the file itself is corrupt.
