The ASUS RT-N13U home router comes configured with an administrative root shell with a default password and is available via telnetd. Changing the password on the web interface does not remediate the issue.

ASUS RT-N13U Backdoor Account

Change Mirror Download
The ASUS RT-N13U home router comes configured with an unsecured telnet for user "admin".
Telnetting in with this user will result in a root shell. The telnet is not configurable from the web interface, nor does changing the password on the web interface's admin user make any difference. I have alerted ASUS to the problem on 10/25/13. I have been able to verify that this telnet interface is visible from both the LAN and WAN.

Sincerely,
Shellster
