Router2NetUSB software is used in many popular home routers made by well-known companies such as Netgear, TP-Link and TrendNet.

Taking advantage of the software’s vulnerability, a hacker can take over the router and inject malware, spy on users, or make it crash altogether.

Experts suggest disabling the NetUSB software and blocking port 20005 on your router’s firewall.
