Note this only affects the DIR-868L with firmware v1.09SHC (Singapore StarHub users)

The CGIBINís URI /authentication.cgi that handles authentication didnít sanitize the input properly. As a result, a maliciously crafted HTTP request can cause a buffer overflow and lead to remote code execution.

Affected models: DIR868L

Affected firmware: v1.09SHC

Fixed firmware: v1.21SHCb03
