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.

To get the code skeleton.

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.
