This vulnerability will require collaborative firmware patches from relevant manufacturers. Edimax is requesting assistance from them and is working diligently for the firmware fix. It will be published on Edimax website as soon as it becomes available.

In the meantime, please update, when available, the operating systems on your computer and mobile devices. Encrypted communication protocols are highly recommended (such as VPN or HTTPS), especially when delivering confidential information. Please also visit Edimax website regularly for the newest information and firmware updates.
