Multiple Linksys Devices Password Field Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

Several Linksys Broadband Router devices are prone to a buffer overflow condition.

An attacker can exploit this vulnerability by issuing an overly long string for the Password field. When the device attempts to process the malformed input, it will crash. Remote exploitation is possible if the device is configured for remote management. However, remote management is disabled by default.

Rebooting the device is necessary to restore functionality.
