Netgear router flaws exploitable with authentication ... like the default creds on Netgear's website

What bombastic bob said... my older devices had default username and password, posted on the website. My newer stock devices have the what appears to be a randomly generated password, printed on the device so you can still find it after factory reset. dd-wrt (after some version) used user: admin (or maybe root), password: admin but requires you to set the password first time into the web interface (...which you go into to set up the wifi network name etc. so it's not a step people are going to skip unless they really want a network named dd-wrt with no encryption.)
