Do you need an update?
A dangerous vulnerability in Realtek chipsets used in hundreds of thousands of smart devices from at least 65 vendors is currently under attack from a notorious DDoS botnet gang.
While Realtek released patches [PDF] before IoT Inspector published its findings last week, this was far too small of a time window for device vendors to deploy the security updates down the line to their own set of customers.
