Re: Broadband CPE Vulnerability Tool?

Can anyone recommend a vulnerability scanner for broadband router CPE such as Netopia, Flowpoint, Siemens? It looks like none of the big names like Nessus do this..

IMHO there are too many firmware revisions, too many flaws and not
enough business for such a vulnerability scanner ...

For example, the Linksys WRT54G comes in 4 families with 10 hardware
revisions and numerous firmware sub-revisions ...

It would be just like tracking every XSS flaw :)

That's what is going to make Cisco's planned virtual processes so sweet to worms and script kiddies, predictable memory locations independent of hardware, firmware or IOS build. Fatal flaw in their thinking meant to be a work around for the pain of parallel development for each variation.
