Well, at least all this CPE checks in for security updates every night so
this should be fixable. Oh wait, no, nevermind, they don't. :-(

This is getting to be the vulnerability of the week club for home gateway
devices - quite concerning.

did you characterise what dns servers / embedded kit were

He said "We have not been able to nail this vulnerability down to a
single box or manufacturer" so it seems the answer is No.

It is my understanding  that many CPEs work off of same reference
implementation(s).  I haven't
had any cycles for this but with all the CPE issues out there it would be
interesting to have
a matrix of which CPEs utilize which reference implementation.  That may
start giving some clues.

Has someone / is someone doing this?
