At the end of January, security firm DefenseCode announced that several routers contained the vulnerabilities which they initially believed affected only some Cisco Linksys routers. 

With the aid of data provided by Rapid 7, the company has determined that around 15 million routers use the vulnerable Broadcom UPnP stack.

Now, DefenseCode has published a partial list of vulnerable router manufacturers and models. The list includes products from 3Com, Actiontec, ABD, ALBIS, Alpha, ASUS, Belkin, Boadcom, China Telecom, D-Link, Huawei and many others.

In the meantime, one vendor, TP-Link, has already released a beta firmware for customers who are concerned that cybercriminals might exploit the security hole against them. The firm promises that the official firmware will be released at the end of February.

Here is the list and here is the advisory published by the security firm.
