D-link stated, that they will address their security leak – which enables unauthorized users to reconfigure router settings without the need for username and password – by the end of October.

Craig Heffner, the security expert for Tactical Network Solutions discovered and published this vulnerability. The security bypass is basically very simple: Your browser’s user agent string needs to be reset to “xmlset_roodkcableoj28840ybtide” character series (without quotes) and you already granted access to the router from local network, or – if remote administration is enabled – even from the internet.

The character series spelled backwards is “edit by 04882 joel backdoor”
