Subject: Re: security hole on local ISP

This is an orgiastic dump of information, you must really hate ETB; or
you must be really excited for lulz.

Last year that could be done only from private IP addresses (i.e. 192.168.0/24), but now it can be done, as I said, from anywhere. I've been told that a few lucky users were able to forward port 80, but in that case, it's port 8080 that is intercepted by the modem.

Unfortunately, ETB uses the same login/password on all of their modems since 2006, which are publicly available on the web.
