Is Your Router Giving Away Company Secrets?

Not only is it a wise investment to scrub and destroy old hard drives, it might be time to take a look at your old router.

As technology continues to advance, businesses and individuals are constantly upgrading their electronic devices, including routers. However, a recent study conducted by Rapid7, a cybersecurity firm, revealed that used routers sold online can contain corporate data that has not been properly erased.

The study examined 22 used routers purchased from popular online marketplaces and found that 77% of them contained personal or corporate data. 

The data included:

  • Login credentials
  • Device configurations 
  • Sensitive information such as bank account details and passport scans.
