Find Out if Your Router is Listening on Backdoor Port 32764

Tuesday, January 7th, 2014

It’s nice that there’s a relatively easy fix for this problem, but I’m still wondering why so many routers have this problem in the first place …

Some days ago it became public knowledge that some routers, that’s devices used for establishing Internet connections among other things, are listening on the undocumented port 32764. First, it was only discovered in one device, the Linksys WAG200G, but it was soon discovered that many routers were also listening on that port. Among the devices are the Cisco WAP4410N-E, the Netgear DGN2000, the OpenWAG200, or the LevelOne WBR3460B.
