Exploit wifi vulnerabilities with routersploit

Exploit Wi-Fi vulnerabilities with Routersploit on termux and Linux

Welcome user, to this article that is about RouterSploit. In the previous article, we discussed how to hack a Wi-Fi password using a dictionary attack. Then in this article, we are going to discuss how to use Routersploit for vulnerabilities analysis.

Today, routers are a priority target of network attacks that allows the stealing of money and data while bypassing local protection systems. How can you personally check the quality of firmware and adequacy of settings? You can do this by using free utilities, online test services

By using the vulnerable CWMP implementation, an attacker could do practically anything, such as setting and reading the configuration parameters, resetting parameters to their default values, and remotely rebooting the device.

The most common type of attack is to substitute DNS addresses in the router settings for addresses of servers controlled by the attacker. They filter the web requests and redirect those addressed to banking services to fake pages. The fake pages have been created for all popular payment systems, such as PayPal, Visa, MasterCard, QIWI, and others.

Why should you use RouterSploit?

It’s clear that there are always some bad practices that users do when it comes to security. Then, by using RouterSploit you can be the first to discover your Network vulnerability before a hacker discovers it. To discover your device’s vulnerabilities RouterSploit is powerful for that reason why you should use it.

As you know if a hacker arrives to hack your device that means he can have access to your network. Also, he can do any modification and can also get some information he wants.

What is RouterSploit?

The RouterSploit Framework is an open-source exploitation framework dedicated to embedded devices. Also, it consisted of various modules that aid penetration testing operations:

  • exploits – modules that take advantage of identified vulnerabilities
  • creds – modules designed to test credentials against network services
  • scanners – modules that check if a target is vulnerable to any exploit
  • payloads – modules that are responsible for generating payloads for various architectures and injection points
  • generic – modules that perform generic attacks

Who can install this tool?

Before we go to the installation, we have to make sure everyone knows if you have what is required.

Requirements

  • future
  • requests
  • paramiko
  • pysnmp
  • pycrypto

We are going to see how you can install RouterSploit on kali-Linux, Ubuntu 20.04, Ubuntu 18.04, OSx, Docker, and Termux. Now we are going to start with the installation process, we are going to use some basics Linux commands if you are not familiar with Linux you can look at this article Linux for beginners.

Usage of RouterSploit

Then, after installation, you can use the command Routersploit to run this tool.

To list all the RouterSploit options just use the command show all.

Then, a very long list of all the features of Routersploit will appear, each, in turn, allows you to perform all kinds of actions to breach routers. Likewise, other devices capable of connecting to the network such as security cameras can be exploited by this framework. Take a few minutes and you will see how no (especially reputable) manufacturer is immune to vulnerabilities.

Then, if we want to test a particular router, we have to choose the order.

use scvanners/autopwn

Now, we use the command:

show options

As you have seen, it is extremely easy to find a way to breach multiple devices with just RouterSploit. Also, you don’t need a computer or a specialized server for this, remember that, especially Kali Linux distributions, can be used live. So there are more possibilities for a cybercriminal to take control of devices such as Wi-Fi routers.

However, depending on each country, if you try to exploit vulnerabilities and take control of a device that is not originally managed by you, you could face some very serious legal issues. Today we have many options for network devices that we can purchase so that we can set up a small lab in our homes.
