Hi Terry. I'm no techy(obviously) but by router you mean the box that routes internet to your PC, right?
Personally, I use mobile phone hot spotting as my modem. Do you know if this method is vulnerable too.?
Also are you suggesting that the problem is repairable or do people need to buy a new router?

I believe she is showing the routers that are vulnerable to hacking by an outside source, which is wise to know, because you want to remain as safe as you possibly can.

The router's manufacturer should have what they call a "fix" or update on their website which will fix the problem--so its fixable IF the manufacturer has fixed it.
Not exactly sure about cell hot spots, but I do know that Android cells have a security issue with them that hackers can get any info from your cell just by standing close to you--that includes your financial info if its stored on your cell!
Its smart practice not to constantly have your cell out in the open. There are small purses & clutches that you can invest in that would block someone from reading whats stored on your cell & credit cards as well.
Hope that explains a bit more. Blessings...

That's amazing. Seems like the number of Online crooks and crooked online schemes are growing exponentially every day, and it surprises me that there isn't some Federal watch dog for this. What does the FTC say about this?

But then the Feds can barely keep their own digital world free from hackers.

That's true. The IRS has been breached & 100,000 records from Americans have been captured by hackers.
There are, however, groups of geek people who volunteer to police the Internet & provide solutions for worms, trojans, viruses, & phishing scams AND supply solutions for them to the freeware anti-virus programs.
But, data breaches are just plain security breaches.
