Thanks for the heads up Shintaro - it seems like there have been a lot of routers with a backdoor recently :(.

It looks like it was not fixed. There was a patch but they just enabled another way to get to the backdoor!
Basically by sending a specific packet to the router, the router will then open up and enable that port again.
HERE is the research.

Naughty naughty! That certainly makes an interesting (and scary!) read :eek:.

It seems as if they are so arrogant that they think that people will not check. This is the kind of thing that people love to check.
Makes you think, "What are they up to?"
