hope you are healthy and staying safe.
Currently I have a lot of free time and been wondering, if my modem (running in Bridge mode for VLAN tagging on PPPoE) could be a security risk.
Modem is a Zyxel VMG1312 (which is recommended for my Deutsche Telekom VLAN (my provider)
What I did is, that I have performed a reset on the modem and then only plugged in my router in LAN Port 4 for automatic VLAN 7 assignment (described here: PPPoE Connection "Unknown error: User Request" // Deutsche Telekom VDSL - #9 by Lasko)
Should I be worried about the firmware on the Zyxel device?
Should I also update the firmware of the Zyxel regularly? Cause it only forwards the traffic.
Can my network be compromised over the Zyxel device when it is only in bridge mode?
Thank you very much.
Have a nice day.
