Every Wireless Router Ever Made Has a Massive Security Breach

As does every device that has ever been made that connects to a wireless router.

This means you need to patch all your computers and smartphones.

This means you need to update the firmware on your wireless router.

This means you need to update the firmware on any printer or other external device that connects through your wireless router.

This means you need to update the firmware on any wireless video streaming device for your TV (including your TV itself if it is a smart TV).

Category 5

I remember years ago I posted that global warming would warm the waters of the Atlantic until, unlike today where the northern Atlantic has cool waters that weaken hurricanes that are bound for DC, NYC and Boston, the warm waters of the future Atlantic will continue to strengthen hurricanes so that they will tend to be category 5 when they strike the north.

I think we may be seeing the first step towards that. The waters of the Caribbean seem to have warmed to the point where it is much much easier for a hurricane to escalate all the way to category 5. Future warming will stretch this zone of warm water farther and farther north.
