1060Re: New LS firmwares & telnet access
- Jan 23, 2005I think that you have something here. I didn't install the new
firmware, but I did prototype what you proposed. Basically I created
a symbolic link to /www, as well as /etc in a share. Then I created
cgi-bin3 under /www and a script in cgi-bin3 via the share. Notable
is the fact that script's permissions are 777 or executable. As
verification I was able to get the script to run via a web browser.
It isn't clear how they are stopping the telnet from running, but it
is just as easy to create a script to fire off a telnet demon.
Are we smoking something or is this a way in?
