Firstly, thanks for upping the hysteria level - although you do seem to have missed out the CAPS and obligatory multiple exclamation!!! marks...
Secondly, rather than propagating useless information (how are users supposed to find out about and apply a fix with no router?). A link to Netgear rather than the Torygraph would be helpful.
For example :- http://kb.netgear.com/000036386/CVE-2016-582384
I simply posted the headline and content from the newspaper article.
There were links to at least 6 other sites carrying the exact same headline but I thought one would suffice.
I had assumed that most people would read the article if they had a Netgear router and have the intelligence to take the necessary action.
Obviously in your case I seriously misjudged your level of competence and IQ.
