Backdoors found into Linksys, Netgear, Cisco & other routers
Any thoughts on this, do any serious web hosts use consumer grade routers? Let's hope not!
its not a big deal specially if your router is configured well
most of these backdoors coming from miss configuring the router
like leaving the default password like admin or password or 123456
Not the case here.

Does this affect equipment running aftermarket firmware (dd-wrt, tomato, etc) or just factory firmware?
Presumably just factory firmware.

I found that my Linksys WAG120N had this mystery port open and responding to input, quit disconcerting to say the least.
As it was a pretty shoddy router to begin with, I've binned it and switched to a DrayTek device instead which seems to be much better.
