  1. SMC Networks was recently made aware of a potential vulnerability in the firmware deployed in certain versions of its cable modems deployed on the Time Warner Cable network in North America.  In specific and limited instances, the firmware could potentially be exploited by hackers intending to compromise the security of a user’s Internet connection and network.
     
    SMC Networks has moved quickly to develop new firmware that fixes the potential vulnerability and eliminates the possibility of a customer illegally accessing other users’ computers or Time Warner Cable’s network.  The new firmware has already been delivered to Time Warner Cable who are updating their end users’ equipment. This update will require that no action be taken by the end users.
     
    SMC Networks and Time Warner Cable take its customers’ network security concerns very seriously and apologizes for any inconvenience that has been caused by this vulnerability.  It is of the utmost importance to SMC to deliver to markets products that are secure, safe and reliable.
