    • One word of advice. There is no single "save running configuration" button. Its really dumb, but save and apply every change to intend to commit. DO NOT CHANGE PAGES before committing a change.

The TL-SG2008 ships with a big stack of security flaws, including the use of SSLv2 years after most sensible vendors have stopped shipping it. The biggest problem, however, is the version of VxWorks shipped in the switch--it's vulnerable to more than ten publicly known flaws, at least one of which goes back five years.

After some initial problems getting TP-Link support to understand the problem, I finally talked to someone who confirmed that the switch is vulnerable--all of their "2-series" switches are.

They have no plans to issue fixed firmware.

Sadly, I didn't discover the problems until I was outside my return window. I've removed it from my network, however.
