  • Backdoor in Certain Combination Wireless Router/DSL Modems

    (January 2, 2014) A backdoor in some combination wireless router/DSL modems could be used to reconfigure the router and access the device's administrative control panel. The attack exploits an open port accessible over the wireless network in certain Linksys and Netgear DSL modems. This attack cannot be launched remotely; the attacker would need to be on the target's local network.

    [Editor's Note (Ullrich): We are already seeing a significant increase in scans for the backdoor. ( see
