Re: Dangerous remote Linksys 0-day root exploit discovered!

said by jbob:

Does anyone actually run the Linksys firmware on these routers? I think many hear, at least they should, are running a third party firmware.

I do. The problem is its complex instructions and easy to brick. I don't want to try it until I have a spare wireless router to use in case something goes wrong.

To be clear my comment about not using the Linksys firmware was for the router in question. The 54GL.

I'm not sure what is so hard about flashing the GL series router. It is so user friendly. Flashing this thing couldn't get any easier. Just pick DD-WRT or Tomato and flash away. There are so many more options available via these two third party firmwares that it makes not using them foolish. lol But I also understand if one doesn't really want to. If the stock firmware works what more can you ask for! Oh another exploit!

DefenseCode finally released their findings. It's related to the uPnP abomination (see »Security Flaws in Universal Plug-n-Play: Unplug, Don't Play) but specific to Broadcom devices.
