Default [UK-Bug] News .. Potential vunerability on Linksys routers.

A 'moderately critical' vunerability in the Linksys WRT54G broadband
router has been found, potentially revealing the Administration console
to malicious internet users, despite the facility being disabled.

Default [UK-Bug] News .. Potential vunerability on Linksys routers.

Old news but simmilar issue as the cheapo routers using the conexant chipset
sold by Ebuyer etc, but being far more dangerous. Telneting to either of 2
ports you can access the router settings with _Any_ password and constantly
reset it to factory defaults, leaving some poor sod with not connection.

This is found on the Origo Branded routers for certain, which a later
firmware version adds a Hidden option to close them. Easy to find out if you
have that option just access the router via a browser and point it @

Not *that* old. The vunerability was registered on the 31st May 2004.
