I ve just tested this code against my SMC 2404WBR. Firmware Version 1.0.10.
But it didnt work.
I saw a lot of UDP & ICMP on the air, but I could access the AP all the
time. Slower as normal but there was still a connection. As stopping the
attack after ~ 10 min everything was just normal.
Sending a stream of UDP random packets to multiple ports 0-65000 on the
router will cause the router to freeze until a soft reset is performed on
I ran the attack against the wireless port.
Perhaps it only works on the WAN Port?
Can confirm DoS weakness in SMC 7004VWBR on WAN side.
Traffic = large loads of UDP and/or ICMP traffic on WAN side.
Stateful Packet Inspection is ON.
Firmware = v1.23 (Part No. 720.638)
