I recently learned that my kids were able to hack into PCWRT by placing a spacebar in the password field and pressing the Enter key and they were able to login into the administration web page. Can anyone else try this and see. Is there a firmware to fix this?
@jasonlee106 This should not be possible. Did you try to log in with just a space? Did that work for you?
If you can log in, I’d suggest that you change the password in System Settings: click “Change Router Password” in the Administration section. After you change the password, try to log in again with a space bar. Let us know if that works.
Yes I am able to login with just a space. I even tried it with 2 spaces and 3 spaces and they all allowed me to login. I changed the password 3 times to a very strong alphanumeric password and I was still able to login with a space. I am also able to login with the newly changed password as well. This is not very secure as my kids were able to figure this out.
