RouterSploit – Exploitation Framework for Embedded devices

The RouterSploit Framework is an open-source exploitation framework devoted to embedded devices. It includes various modules that aid penetration testing operations:

  • exploits – modules that take advantage of identified vulnerabilities
  • creds – modules designed to test credentials against network services
  • scanners – modules that check if a target is vulnerable to any exploit


  • gnureadline (OSX only)
  • requests
  • paramiko
  • beautifulsoup4
  • pysnmp


root@kali:~# apt-get install routersploit

Usage Exploits

The routersploit is a similar tool to Metasploit, very easy to create more modules. Anyone can extend the tool easily with the help of exploit databases.

It is a critical vulnerability that allows an attacker to take remote control of a router connected to the Internet and it can be fixed only by hardware vendors.

root@kali:~# routersploitrsf > use exploits/multi/misfortune_cookiersf (Misfortune Cookie) > show options


Scanner Quickly checks the target is vulnerable to any exploit, here we are to use autopwn scanners for all vulnerabilities.

rsf use scanner/autopwnrsf (Autopwn) > show optionsrsf (Autopwn) > set target IPrsf (Autopwn) > run

RouterSploit has various creds modules that can brute force various services, including HTTP, SSH, and Telnet.

Services supported:

  • ftp
  • ssh
  • telnet
  • http basic auth
  • http digest auth
  • http form auth
  • snmp

As like every brute force tool you should prepare a wordlist, every service has two modules for reference (ftp_bruteforce,ftp_default)

ftp_default as the name indicates will check for default credentials and the process will be completed in minutes.

ftp_bruteforce does a dictionary account over single or multiple user accounts with credentials provided in the list.

You can find the video Tutorial on the GitHub page.

API Vulnerability Scanning

71% of the internet traffic comes from APIs so APIs have become soft targets for hackers.Securing APIs is a simple workflow provided you find API specific vulnerabilities and protect them.In the upcoming webinar, join Vivek Gopalan, VP of Products at Indusface as he takes you through the fundamentals of API vulnerability scanning..
Key takeaways include:

  • Scan API endpoints for OWASP API Top 10 vulnerabilities
  • Perform API penetration testing for business logic vulnerabilities
  • Prioritize the most critical vulnerabilities with AcuRisQ
  • Workflow automation for this entire process
