How to Hack Cisco Routers

How to Hack Cisco Routers
Now, I know all of you are wondering why the heck I would write an article about hacking a router. Well, let me tell you two things. One, I’m not actually writing an article on the subject. And, two, it was one of the searches on the Computer Networks site that really stood out. Not, to say that all the other searches don’t peak my interest. All of the searches done on my site give me ideas for articles posted on this site. This particular search was just a little out of the ordinary. Now, that we’ve got number two cleared up, back to number one.

I’m not writing the article simply because there is already a great article out on the net at SecurityFocus by Mark Wolgang. It’s a two-part article, updated September 2003, focusing on identifying and exploiting some of the vulnerabilities in Cisco routers. If you haven’t already read, it’s one article that you really should read because it also shows how vulnerable even the Internet’s infrastructure is. Now, this article is not intended for you to read and go out hacking routers and I’m sure it wasn’t the author’s intention either. The article is simply to alert you and remind you of the importance of understanding and maintaining basic security measures in order to protect yourself and your online world. The reality of it all is if systems, like Internet, were to suddenly crimple or fail for a day or two, our lives would surely be devastated because we are a society that has become dependent on technology. But, by the same token, society has also taken technology for granted by building our lives around the assumption that technology will never fail us. There’s not one person who has had a computer and it not fail at one time or another. But, like I said, if you haven’t read the article, take a look at it. It has some good information.
