Millions of Sky routers ‘had significant software bug’

Roughly six million Sky routers had a ‘significant software bug’ that could have led to hackers taking over home networks, a BBC report has revealed.

According to researchers, while the issue has been fixed, it took a year and a half to address.

The news broadcaster said that the bug could have impacted anyone who hadn’t changed the default password on their router.

"We take the safety and security of our customers very seriously," Sky told the BBC.
"After being alerted to the risk, we began work on finding a remedy for the problem and we can confirm that a fix has been delivered to all Sky-manufactured products."

The report said that affected models included: Sky Hub 3 (ER110), Sky Hub 3.5 (ER115), Booster 3 (EE120), Sky Hub (SR101), Sky Hub 4 (SR203), and Booster 4 (SE210.)
