Linksys hole allows data grab and network crash:02 June 2004
By Matthew Broersma, Techworld.com
Knew that this would happen ever since the security team discovered that Cisco products had a defect in them.
Besides, Linksys is a Cisco brand (for those who didn't know).
Posted story in the Security section, Forums Front Page of a different Router, a wireless one made by them.
Different source and problem though. But good heads-up tdinc just the same.
I'll go and post.
Gave you credit for it tdinc.
Glad I don't own any of their products.
just doin' my job
For anyone suggesting a Netgear router .. here.
I use a d-link router. I like its firmware
Now that is f00ked up.
I have the MR814v2 wireless router. Just tried out that username/password combination. Doesn't seem to affect this particular model.
New Firmware befsr41 v1 v2
There is a new firmware for the befsr41 v1 & v2 got it installed without much hassle, After upgrade all settings were still there.
Small problem with Dhcp, it does not load when boot comp, so i have to untick
Dhcp then tick again and apply to config page and then its ok.
But this is only because i switch comp and all psu's at end of night.
Maybe someone could shed light on why this might happen?
Was checking out dslreports forum (as I always do before updating my router firmware) and read that some ppl are having to refresh there WAN IP like everyday (some every 1-2 hrs) and then a few are also unable to do any online gaming with disconnect.
BEFSR11 update 6-4-2004 - INCLUDES a BOOTP vulnerability fix.
Check for recent updates for your linksys routers! They finally addressed the vulnerability.
It's about time... I don't know how they can keep customers with this type of support.
I swear I posted this a week ago, oh wait, why is there 2 threads on this? http://www.osnn.net/forum/showthread.php?p=381548#post381548
To enhance confusion
same reason as always
Ummmmmm... the more the merrier???
im afraid to upgrade to this version because last time i upgraded firmware i wasent able to play online multiplayer games. what do u guys think? should i install it? also how do i find out which version of the router i have. i know i have the BEFSR41 but i dont know what version.
upgrade or not
Hi dont no much about the on line games bit, but the version number should be on the bottom of the router on a label model no.
Hope this helps ya
