Asus have settled charged with the Federal Trade Commission which cited that Asus routers and services put hundreds of thousands of computers at risk due to critical security flaws. Asus will now have to establish and maintain a security program to independent audits for the next 20 years.

Asus had marketed their routers as having several security features claiming it could “protect computers from any unauthorized access, hacking, and virus attacks,” However, the FTC said Asus did not release patches quickly, or alert users they could run a risk by having outdated firmware.

Jessica Rich, Director of the FTC’s Bureau of Consumer Protection released this statement…

“The Internet of Things is growing by leaps and bounds, with millions of consumers connecting smart devices to their home networks. Routers play a key role in securing those home networks, so it’s critical that companies like ASUS put reasonable security in place to protect consumers and their personal information.”
