Some are really bad stuff:

Linksys SMART WiFi vulnerabilities




Linksys EA series routers running the Linksys SMART WiFi firmware contain multiple vulnerabilities.










CWE-320: Key Management Errors - CVE-2014-8243


An unauthenticated attacker on the local area network (LAN) can read the router's .htpassword file by requestinghttp(s)://<router_ip>/.htpasswd. The .htpasswd file contains the MD5 hash of the administrator password.

CWE-200: Information Exposure - CVE-2014-8244

A remote, unauthenticated user can issue various JNAP calls by sending specially-crafted HTTP POST requests tohttp(s)://<router_ip>/JNAP/. Depending on the JNAP action that is called, the attacker may be able to read or modify sensitive information on the router.

It should also be noted that the router exposes multiple ports to the WAN by default. Port 100080 and 52000 both expose the administrative web interface to WAN users. Depending on the model, additional ports may be exposed by default as well.













A remote, unauthenticated attacker may be able to read or modify sensitive information on the router.













Apply an Update:

If possible, users are encouraged to update their firmware to the latest version to remediate these vulnerabilities. Linksys has provided the following fix versions:

timmmay: Port 100080? Wow, they have more ports than anyone else!

They probally use it as a marketing feature. "You want the most ports? buy this router"

Yet another reason to not buy one of these terrible pieces of equipment.

They are seriously the biggest pieces of junk I have ever made the mistake of attempting to configure. Surprised Linksys still exists as a brand.
