Nine WiFi routers used by millions were vulnerable to 226 flaws: https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/security/nine-wifi-routers-used-by-millions-were-vulnerable-to-226-flaws/

Some issues are critical, many are overstated or possibly can't be exploited (a bit clickbaity). However, update if you have one of the affected routers.

Expected to happen...

I have dozens units....
Autoupdate is out of question..

Older chipsets just can not afford newer kernels.. and better crypto

While having focus on selling new gear obsoletes have no attention

This situation will olny gets worst w. iot

The investment in qualified people is negletable faced with invested in new gear and fancy interfaces

So expect to be a lot bad with cloud bots
 In near future of powerful SOM SOCs

although the older ones are hopeless...

Presently I try to buy devices based on (really) smart hardware...

Yep, buying SOHO routers supported by OpenWrt is a good advise for long term usage and to reduce e-waste.

They are also order of magnitude more reliable and secure..
