Own a D-Link router (e.g. DIR-300, DIR-600, DIR-615, DIR-645, DIR-815, DIR-845L, DIR-865L, DSL-320B and DSL-321B)? If so then it's strongly advised that you update to the latest firmware after an easy to exploit security flaw was discovered that could give others access to your router.

In the meantime D-Link are advising owners to ignore unsolicited e-mails that relate to security vulnerabilities and prompt you to action, make sure your wireless network is secure and to also disable remote access to your router. A little common sense about network security hopefully means that most people should already be doing this.
