    I originally posted over on the sister w7forum sister site, but thought that some might not look over there being that they have only Windows 8.

    So basically there backdoor in some routers. HERE is the article.

    You can check your router HERE on the GRC website.

    There was apparently a patch issued, but all they did was try to hide the backdoor.
    Eloi Vanderbeken of Synacktiv did some reverse engineering and produced THIS PDF.

    Briefly by sending a specific packet to the router, the router will open up the port and re-enable the backdoor.
