It comes ready to go with 10 serious security vulnerabilities.

Naked Security explains:

If you own a D-Link DIR-850L AC1200 Dual Band Gigabit Cloud router, we have bad news for you on several fronts.

According to researcher Pierre Kim, the product has 10 security vulnerabilities serious enough for him to recommend owners to “immediately disconnect vulnerable routers from the internet”.

That sounds worrying, but it gets worse. First, Kim has made the flaws public without first coordinating with D-Link, an unusual step he says he took after the company responded poorly last year to issues he reported to them in another product, the DWR-932B mobile hotspot router.
