RouterOS Security Research
This repository contains various tools and exploits developed while performing security research on MikroTik's RouterOS. The various projects are broken up into the following subdirectories:
- 8291_honeypot: A honeypot that listens for Winbox messages.
- 8291_scanner: A scanner that attempts to talk Winbox to a provided list of IP addesses.
- brute_force: A couple of tools for guessing the admin password on the winbox and www interfaces.
- cleaner_wrasse: A tool to enable the devel backdoor on the majority of RouterOS releases.
- common: Winbox and JSProxy implementations used across multiple projects.
- modify_npk: A tool that overwrites an NPK's squashfs section with a new squashfs.
- msg_re: Tools for discovering Winbox message routing and handlers.
- pcap_parsers: Various tools that parse Winbox or JSProxy pcap files.
- poc: Proof of concept exploits.
- slides: Slides from talks given on this repositories material.
- tests: A set of unit tests that test the Winbox/JSProxy implementations
For much more detail drill down into the individual directories.
Almost everything here is written in C++ (there are only two exceptions). In order to compile everything you'll need:
- Boost 1.66 or higher
For a couple of projects you'll also need:
Each project should contain specific instructions but, in general, the following should be sufficient.
mkdir build cd ./build/ cmake .. make
