Securobods warn of wide open backdoor in Netis/Netcore routers

As these routers have upgradeable firmware, it should not be too difficult to download the firmware, change the password, and install the modded image. It would only take a few minutes to write a script to randomize rhe password, providing the original password was known.

Of course the manufacturer could provide firmware without the backdoor if their customers pressured them.
