Verizon Router & the Heartbleed bug

Message 1 of 2

Is my router's firmware up to date as per the Heartbleed bug? Apple had to update its AirPort routers firmware, so is my Verizon router secure? Anyone know or can help?

 

My question stems from the CNNMoney article...

money.cnn.com/2014/04/24/technology/security/heartbleed-security/index.html?iid=Lead

 

So I figured to ask and the "Ask Verizon" auto agent is useless for questions like this. thx

I've asked someone in-the-know at Verizon, and they have indicated the FiOS routers do not suffer from the Heartbleed bug.
