Multiple Linksys WRT54G Vulnerabilities
« on: September 16, 2005, 03:55:33 am »
  Not sure why tonight I found a bunch of things to start topics on  but, since this is a pretty popular wireless router and people could potentially get hacked without anyone even coming into your house, i'd call it important.

  "Successful exploitation of this vulnerability would allow an
unauthenticated user the ability to modify the configuration of the
affected router, including the password. This could allow firewall rules
to be changed, installation of a new firmware with other features, or
denial of service. Exploitation of this vulnerability would require that
an attacker can connect to the web management port of the router. The
httpd is running by default but is only accessible via the LAN ports or
the WLAN (wireless LAN)."

Interesting, especially since I am currently using a neighbor's wireless to access the internet. I wouldn't know how to hack anything, I just want to get online.  :-\

I am nice  ;) I have my own wireless at home, that post was made while I was in Texas and when I travel, I'll steal internet where ever I can get it.

My friend's been using his neighbor's internet for a few years now. Good stuff.

In response to internet stealing, who is more at fault, the stealer or the user broadcasting it?

I have wireless internet at my house, at least I know how to protect it.

Is that an insult? ???
