Basic security

Disable UPnP and change the usernames and admin-passwords, don’t enable remote access and don’t use default IP ranges.

Router vulnerabilities

A critical security vulnerability in a router allows a remote attacker to take full control of the router’s configuration settings, or one that allows a local attacker to bypass authentication and take control. This control allows an attacker to intercept and modify network traffic as it enters and leaves the network.
