The remote host can be accessed by known default credentials.


The remote host is a Pirelli AGE mB (microBusiness) router with its default password set (admin/microbusiness).

An attacker could telnet to it and reconfigure it to lock the owner out and to prevent him from using his Internet connection, and do bad things.


Telnet to this router and set a new password immediately.
