Satechi makes a travel router that broadcasts a protected wifi network that can be configured connect to either a wired or wireless network on it?s public (wan) interface. It runs a customized dd-wrt build from version 2.4
The router is configurable via a web interface available within its protected (pan) network.
A exploit is available when the router?s public interface is configured to use a wifi network; where the web management console is available externally via http. The router?s web management via wan setting has no effect in this particular situation. the web console is available via any browser like http://<ip of wan interface>
The exploit cannot be reproduced when the router?s public interface is on a wired network and in this case the web management via wan setting is behaving as expected.
Strong recommendation that users of the Satechi travel configure the router use http authentication to prevent unauthorized console access.
