Researchers from Lyrebirds recenty disclosed vulnerabilities found in Broadcom-based cable modems across multiple vendors. A security flaw in a tool called Spectrum Analyzer allows an attacker to gain control of the modem through a malicious WebSocket communication. These vulnerabilities (officially registered as CVE-2019-19494 and CVE-2019-19495) are called Cable Haunt.
Our cellular routers are not affected by the „Cable Haunt“ vulnerability. Our hardware is not based on Broadcom chips and our firmware nor any official user module do not include the Spectrum Analyzer tool. Should you have more questions, please contact your Regional Support.
