Hardcoded password in Netis, Netcore routers offers backdoor to devices

2014/08/26

Softpedia - (International) Trend Micro researchers found that some routers sold under the Netis brand in the U.S. and other countries, and under the Netcore brand in China, contain a backdoor that can be accessed if the routers provide external access. The researchers also found a hardcoded password in the devices that can allow anyone with the password to access the router.
