Default Backdoor in wireless DSL routers lets attacker reset router, get admin

From http://arstechnica.com/security/2014...ter-get-admin/

Quote:
A hacker has found a backdoor to wireless combination router/DSL modems that could allow an attacker to reset the router’s configuration and gain access to the administrative control panel. The attack, confirmed to work on several Linksys and Netgear DSL modems, exploits an open port accessible over the wireless local network.
