How to hack a WiFi

A hacker from France named “Eloi Vanderbeken”found a way to hack NetGear and Linksys wireless routers on Christmas, and as well as, he distributed that secret exploit in public also.

The secret exploit allows an attacker to change the admin panel password to default without any admin authentication.

Eloi forgot his Linksys WAG200G router’s password and was trying to crack that , he scanned that and found a suspicious open TCP port. He researched on the part deeply and downloaded the copy Linksys firmware and then reverse-engineered that.

After a research 0n that port, he found that was a secret backdoor that allows anyone to send commands on admin basis without admin authentication. Well, it’s a cool exploit for- who really forgot the password, but may be dangerous for them where- Near-by “Hackers situated.”
