    Yes you aren't alone, I've been trying to get this looked at in the Soho section for weeks now and either nobody looks at it or the company isn't interested in sorting it out so don't expect any help anytime soon,

    BT homehubs have been updated and still show the issue from what I've read and the only info I can find that shows anyone that has bothered to update is Asus and even on old models,

    Pretty poor imo, it's only been like it since Sept 2017 but even so Avast has only been flashing it up since Feb 2018, before that I used to get a default password warning on the USB media settings from Avast but this has now vanished to be replaced by the CVE warning so who knows, Avast does throw false positives but in this case the CVE is well known across the board, I assume it's the 14491 one you're getting.

    TPLink has received the security vulnerabilty report from Google and we keep following on this problem.
    At present this security vulnerability has been fixed and the new firmware is on checking. Please pay attention on the firmware update of your TPLink router.

    Technologically, someone need to connect your router and attack.So before the firmware released, please manage your TPLink router and do not let others know your admin password and do not let unknown people to connect your network before the router is updated

    It's a dam fine unit tbh Jason, it's let down by support though, you may want to think it through a bit before returning it, £80 doesn't buy much of a router and especially with the feature set which can help negate the issue anyway if you configure it to do the best it can,Ensure you have the SPi walls enabled and the DoS flooding set to max, don't bother with Mac filtering and white/blacklisting unless you spot a Mac addy that you know doesn't belong on your network, you can also change the default 192 login to something other than 1 and Mac lock it to only one device to manage it from, although Mac cloning/spoofing may get round this as well and hence why I said don't spend hours adding Mac's in the filtering list, ensure you change the USB settings to use a new set of username and password and turn it off totally anyway as it's a bit of a "err yeah" function anyway, and remember with wifi passwords longer is better and random is best, being as the guest wifi is also WP2 and AES you can effectively use two sets of long random passwords along with AP isolation to close as many doors as you can,At the end of the day though nothing is perfect and only now are they waking up to the fact that the router is as much a doorway in as a c'mon in unsecured OS, to save you a lot of searching the only routers I've found that have been masq updated that you will find in the normal sort of places are Asus ones but the kicker is the units are all 3-5 years old now by design and even though they have this all singing thing included by Trend Micro to keep the unwanted out Trend Micro ain't exactly a leader in staying up to date, infact Malwarebytes does much the same thing anyway if you have the paid version that works in real time,So in summary, the 600 is a cracker of a unit let down by slow programming at the factory, I'd go so far as to say it trumps the 900 unit in everything other than synthetic wifi speeds, I'm hoping they will hit us up with an update and soon and if anything it maybe that they want to release it right first time rather than cause a new set of problems with a dodgy FW release, it would be nice if there was some sort of comms update though rather than this silence we seem to see when things need attention.
