Anatomy of an exploit - Linksys router remote password change hole

A security researcher from San Jose in California has published a how-to guide detailing a number of vulnerabilities in various Linksys routers.

Phil Purviance, who goes by the handle of SUPER.EVR (EVR stands for Exploitation Vulnerability Research), reported the holes privately on 05 March 2013:

Hello Cisco PSIRT, I would like to report several vulnerabilities in Linksys network equipment. A public advisory regarding these issues may be released 30 days after sending this report.
And Purviance certainly lived up to his threat, publicly releasing the gory details on 05 April 2013 on his blog.
