Hardcoded passwords leave Telstra routers wide open

http://j.mp/TC76Uv  (SC Magazine)

   "Hardcoded usernames and passwords have been discovered in a recent
    line of Telstra broadband routers that could allow attackers access to
    customer networks.  SC was tipped off to the public disclosure of the
    flaws on 16 October, 2012, and given the threat posed to Telstra
    customers, had warned Telstra and delayed publication until the telco
    and vendor Netcomm had developed and fully tested a firmware fix."
