Does anyone noticed that to authenticate in any wireless router running
DD-WRT firmware (lastest version), it only check the first 8 characters of
E.g. you can set the root password to yellowmonkey123 () 123 and when you try
to authenticate with yellowmonkey () blablabla ... got root!
Some other firmware users noticed and reported to the developer, but no
action was taken.
It´s a excelent firmware to use with linksys routers, many extras resources,
etc, but not from the security point of view.
