Linksys hole allows data grab and network crash:02 June 2004

Knew that this would happen ever since the security team discovered that Cisco products had a defect in them.
Besides, Linksys is a Cisco brand (for those who didn't know).

New Firmware befsr41 v1 v2

There is a new firmware for the befsr41 v1 & v2 got it installed without much hassle, After upgrade all settings were still there.
Small problem with Dhcp, it does not load when boot comp, so i have to untick
Dhcp then tick again and apply to config page and then its ok.
But this is only because i switch comp and all psu's at end of night.
Maybe someone could shed light on why this might happen?

Was checking out dslreports forum (as I always do before updating my router firmware) and read that some ppl are having to refresh there WAN IP like everyday (some every 1-2 hrs) and then a few are also unable to do any online gaming with disconnect.
BEFSR11 update 6-4-2004 - INCLUDES a BOOTP vulnerability fix.

Check for recent updates for your linksys routers! They finally addressed the vulnerability.
im afraid to upgrade to this version because last time i upgraded firmware i wasent able to play online multiplayer games. what do u guys think? should i install it? also how do i find out which version of the router i have. i know i have the BEFSR41 but i dont know what version.
