O2 has announced that it has discovered a solution to issues which affect its home broadband routers.

The home broadband provider recently warned customers about a flaw on the router which could leave them vulnerable to having their personal information stolen if hackers took control of affected systems.

O2 says the firm has been "working to find a solution" to the home broadband security flaw, "having been notified" of the issue.

It adds that it has been working with Thomson, the router's manufacturer, to investigate the flaw and come up with an answer.

"As a result we have identified a solution and we will be applying this remotely to all of our customers O2 wireless boxes. This means that customers will not have to take any action themselves," says the firm.

Last week, O2 announced the launch of a deal which sees new customers offered three months of broadband access for free.
