Linksys WRT54G security problem.
Archived from groups: alt.internet.wireless (More info?)
From the included version information:
- Resolved security issue where remote management is enabled on port 80 and
443 when firewall is disabled
- Additional features are under development and are not supported in this
What I do not understand is why this is a beta release. It seems to me that
turning off remote management over ports 80 and 443 (I assume that this is
without a password?) when the firewall is disabled should be possible
without introducing more bugs into the firmware.
