Backdoor in Linksys and Netgear routers - Hacking

router

This news could hurt the reputation of both companies. A passionate (and obviously very competent) reverse-engineer from France, Eloi Vanderbeken forgot the admin interface password of his router and so he just wanted to have fun accessing the administration side and that’s when he discovered a backdoor in his Linksys WAG200G router. After publishing this discovery on Github, other users have confirmed its existence in at least three other routers:
  • Netgear DM111Pv2
  • Linksys WAG320N
  • Linksys WAG54G2
Other routers are suspected of providing equal opportunity to obtain the administrator password through the 32764 port, but it has not yet been confirmed:
  • Netgear DG934
  • Netgear DG834
  • Netgear WPNT834
  • Netgear DG834G
  • Netgear WG602
  • Netgear WGR614
  • Netgear DGN2000
  • Linksys WAG120N
  • Linksys WAG160N
  • Linksys WRVS4400N
