  1. A 'moderately critical' vunerability in the Linksys WRT54G broadband
    router has been found, potentially revealing the Administration console
    to malicious internet users, despite the facility being disabled.

    Old news but simmilar issue as the cheapo routers using the conexant chipset
    sold by Ebuyer etc, but being far more dangerous. Telneting to either of 2
    ports you can access the router settings with _Any_ password and constantly
    reset it to factory defaults, leaving some poor sod with not connection.

    This is found on the Origo Branded routers for certain, which a later
    firmware version adds a Hidden option to close them. Easy to find out if you
    have that option just access the router via a browser and point it @

  3. Not *that* old. The vunerability was registered on the 31st May 2004.
