I have a ONT and a router provided by telecom for my fibre connection, are they vulnerable to the Shellshock bug?

I couldn't find any information on Spark's website.

Are either actually accessible to the internet?

You need a process that is internet accessible (apache etc) for it to actually be an issue externally.

i don't run web servers or anything but I do run things like BitTorrent and have configured port forwarding on the router, does that matter?

freitasm: He's asking if those processes run on the modem/router itself.


thanks.

No, the BT client runs on a Windows machine, the router only does port forwarding.

My Guess: Probably not. Most embedded devices in the modem/router category don't tend to run full bash, they tend to run busybox due to its small footprint.
Of course there are exceptions to this, which is why this bug is a problem even for embedded devices.

If you can get a telnet or ssh session open, use bash --version or echo $BASH_VERSION to see if you have it

I'd be more worried about the dynalink routers that a certain ~4th largest ISP in the country was sending out to customers for about 5 years with admin/admin credentials and the port 80 web admin accessible on the WAN interface, with the DSL username and password in plaintext on the ppp settings page sourcecode.

thanks for he information.

I didn't have luck getting telnet or ssh to work, I can get a telnet session but the user/password from the web interface doesn't work for telnet, ssh doesn't even connect.
