Hacking the BSNL Routers and thus the emails !

Well, One of the biggest security blunders is relying on the default credentials. Many routers come preconfigured with default username password pair which generally is admin —admin  or admin — root or  root—admin or root—root

I am Using Angry IP scanner to scan for open port 80 which is router’s login port.

The video example I am demonstrating here is  an  ADSL router from PRONET Networking Solutions having admin as the username and password admin.

This video also shows how a compromised router can land an attacker directly into the victim’s email inbox.  The ISP is bsnl in this case which provides its users a password which is always password. You just need to know the username which I have blurred due to security reasons and for I am sometimes Ethical ……………. Let’s see :

So, the moral is don’t rely on defaults !
