Hackers are notorious for stealing sensitive information from individuals and using it for their personal gain. Netcore, a Chinese manufacturer that produces a router called Netis, has made the jobs of hackers much easier. According to PC world, the manufacturer made a hardwired password inside of the system that allows hackers to view and monitor activity. This is equivalent to the administration tools you receive when using 192.168.l.l in your browser.
Netcore’s NW616 router model uses port 53413 which allows full control of the device and allows prying eyes to eavesdrop information within the devices hooked up to the router. Using 192.168.l.l in your web browser allows you to beef up security on your end by permitting you to password protect your wifi, manage port permissions and much more. However, the 192.168.l.l tool will not prevent you from being hacked while using a Netcore router.
One must use outside software such as Tomato in order to make sure their privacy is not at risk. As stated earlier, using 192.168.l.l is also a great way to prevent one of the most common types of hacking – sniffing. Sniffing is when a hacker looks for unsecured wifi networks and breaks into them. Use 192.168.l.l to password protect your wireless network from outsiders.
