This is a huge range of models, and it's a concern considering how many, or should I say few, people pay any attention to their router.
|Technical details about a vulnerability in Linksys routers that’s being exploited by a new worm have been released Sunday along with a proof-of-concept exploit and a larger than earlier expected list of potentially vulnerable device models. |
Last week, security researchers from the SANS Institute’s Internet Storm Center identified a self-replicating malware program that exploits an authentication bypass vulnerability to infect Linksys routers. The worm has been named TheMoon.Linksys Router Exploit Released For The Moon Worm [pcworld.com]
|“I was hoping this would stay under wraps until a firmware patch could be released, but it appears the cat is out of the bag,” Rew wrote in the exploit notes. |
|The list includes not only models from the Linksys E-Series, but also from the Wireless-N product line. |
The following models are listed: E4200, E3200, E3000, E2500, E2100L, E2000, E1550, E1500, E1200, E1000, E900, E300, WAG320N, WAP300N, WAP610N, WES610N, WET610N, WRT610N, WRT600N, WRT400N, WRT320N, WRT160N and WRT150N. However, Rew notes that the list might not be accurate or complete.
