Netcore Router Udp 53413 Backdoor



Routers manufactured by Netcore, a popular brand for networking equipment in China, have a wide-open backdoor that can be fairly easily exploited by attackers. These products are also sold under the Netis brand name outside of China. This backdoor allows cyber criminals to easily run arbitrary code on these routers, rendering it vulnerable as a security device. Some models include a non-standard echo command which doesn't honor -e, and are therefore not currently exploitable with Metasploit. See URLs or module markdown for additional options.

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 exploit/linux/misc/netcore_udp_53413_backdoor
msf exploit(netcore_udp_53413_backdoor) > show targets
msf exploit(netcore_udp_53413_backdoor) > set TARGET < target-id >
msf exploit(netcore_udp_53413_backdoor) > show options
    ...show and set options...
msf exploit(netcore_udp_53413_backdoor) > exploit

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.
