I'm using an anti-virus that told me that my router can be compromised with the ROM-0 vulnerability.
It told me to use "port forwarding" to fix it. But, my router have a "port triggering", which they say is an upgrade from "port forwarding"
I tried to look around the web for tutorials to fix it, but I couldn't find it (you can find tons of port forwarding tutorials, but almost none for port triggering).
Can someone help me to address fix the vulnerability? (also as a tutorial for the the other people who also have port triggering)
The anti-virus told me do 2 things:
- Forward port 80 on the router to a non-used IP address on your network.
- Enter your router configuration and go to “Port forwarding” configuration.
- Send all http traffic, of all protocols, to star and end port 80 in a non-used local IP address (something like 192.168.0.xxx, where xxx would be a non-used IP).
In my router, I can set a port triggering rule, that have these areas:
- Start match port
- End match port
- Trigger Protocol (UDP, TCP or both)
- Start relate port
- End relate port
- Open protocol (UDP, TCP or both)
- NAT type (outgoing or incoming)
Router: D-link DIR-610 B1
- Couldn't find info in english for the documentation (It's in Portuguese only): http://www.dlink.com.br/produto/dir-610-b1
EDIT: Do I really need to know the model to fix the vulnerability? Isn't there any type of general fix for routers?
