Apple Airport Extreme Password Extraction (WDBRPC)

This module can be used to read the stored password of a vulnerable Apple Airport Extreme access point. Only a small number of firmware versions have the WDBRPC service running, however the factory configuration was vulnerable. It appears that firmware versions 5.0.x as well as 5.1.x are susceptible to this issue. Once the password is obtained, the access point can be managed using the Apple AirPort utility.
