    I read a lot about wrt54G invunerabilities and so i want to challenge my OWN and Spare wrt54G. 'cause if I can hack it, other can too. (and that's the part I don't like) Since I forgot my password and I don't want to push the reset button, this seems a nice challenge (I have some spare time at the moment ) So the challenge is to get/guess the password

    A few ideas:
    - Backup the config and read out the password.
    reading the password is not the problem, someone on this forum
    wrote a program for it.
    Problem: How to backup without password?

    Brute Force: Can be done, only takes about 3 milion years (p2) or so.
    I am not that bored :)

    Get some firmware on it like (batbox?wi-fibox?) wich can be deleted with a reset.
    Again, how to do this without password.

    Use the buffer overflow (something about 10.000 bytes of code
    which causes a buffer overflow)
    wich on his turn causes a httpd demon crash but before that you can execute some code, like "set password, backup or bootset_wait etc. etc.

    Who wants to challenge this?
