ExpressVPN Router's Login Panel runs on Nginx webserver, the version v1 of the router's firmware hosts web login panel on vulnerable web server

ExpressVPN Summary: A publicly known bug in the Nginx server used by the ExpressVPN Router version 1.x firmware was reported. ExpressVPN no longer ships or supports that version and all users are encouraged to upgrade to the latest version of the ExpressVPN Router firmware available on our site, which is not vulnerable to this bug. Additionally, we highly discourage our users from exposing their router control panel to the Internet, as this class of bug would only be exploitable with access to the control panel, which is usually restricted to the local network.
