D-Link patches router bugs
New firmware is out for D-Link router models that have a vulnerability attackers could use to gain control of the device.
Tactical Network Solutions researchers gave details of the vulnerability to D-Link officials in October.
D-Link released the new firmware last week for DI-524, DI-524UP, DIR-100 and DIR-120 routers. While that is the good news, the bad news is there are other models that suffer from the vulnerability. That list also includes DI-604S, and DI-604UP, DI-604 +, TM-G5240 and possible versions of DIR-615.
In its security advisory, D-Link urges customers to beware of unsolicited emails related to these vulnerabilities. The company said it never sends notifications asking users to install or click on something.
The router models for which updates have been released are old, so it actually may be a better idea to change the devices altogether.

Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
