Open WAN-to-LAN proxy on AT&T routers



The Arris NVG589 and NVG599 routers configured with AT&T U-verse firmware 9.2.2h0d83 expose an un-authenticated proxy that allows connecting from WAN to LAN by MAC address.

Module Options

To display the available options, load the module within the Metasploit console and run the commands 'show options' or 'show advanced':

msf > use auxiliary/scanner/wproxy/att_open_proxy
msf auxiliary(att_open_proxy) > show actions
msf auxiliary(att_open_proxy) > set ACTION < action-name >
msf auxiliary(att_open_proxy) > show options
    ...show and set options...
msf auxiliary(att_open_proxy) > run 

Time is precious, so I don’t want to do something manually that I can automate. Leveraging the Metasploit Framework when automating any task keeps us from having to re-create the wheel as we can use the existing libraries and focus our efforts where it matters.
