A short insight into ADSL security

Recently, one of our security researchers has been working on a project related to ADSL security.
During his research with various ADSL routers, cameras, and other devices, he also created a simple program that will perform brief on-line test of ADSL device security.

Program (in fact, a script) will try to connect to your ADSL modem and perform two security checks:
1. It will try to determine if remote administration interface is enabled
2. It will also try to login with default password

If these two checks return positive results it means that your ADSL modem is not properly configured, and it is wide-open to hacking attacks.

Check how secure is your ADSL router...
Script is available here:
