Re: ASUS RT-N13U Unsecured Telnet on LAN and WAN

It should be further noted, that setting a password for the telnet account via the /sbin/chpasswd.sh script is only 
valid until the next reboot when it gets wiped out.

After alerting ASUS, I got the following non-reply.  They are not taking the problem seriously (they just closed out 
the ticket with a generic response):

Subject: [Full-disclosure] ASUS RT-N13U Unsecured Telnet on LAN and WAN




The ASUS RT-N13U home router comes configured with an unsecured telnet for user "admin".
Telnetting in with this user will result in a root shell.  The telnet is not configurable from the web interface, nor 
does changing the password on the web interface's admin user make any difference.  I have alerted ASUS to the problem 
on 10/25/13.  I have been able to verify that this telnet interface is visible from both the LAN and WAN.

Sincerely,
Shellster
