    Netgear"fix" for backdoor?

    They really blew it, just renamed the superuser account with new firmware, but the flaw remained. Now German site posted the new name and password, so now it still is a complete debacle: dslreports

    The old "Why fix it when you can just rename it and hope no-one notices." trick.

    If they wanted to keep it they could at least give the user the option of disabling it or changing the password.
