Vonage I look forward to hearing more about the presentation. Since both the abstract

I look forward to hearing more about the presentation. Since both the abstract and the (possibly sensationalized) CNN report are sketchy at best, and lacking in any detail, I can't fully analyze the threat. Plus the fact that, though I've read instructions on cracking the WRTP54G and RTP300 and I know it's not terribly hard to do, it's not something I'm ready to do with my factory device (I depend on my line, so losing it through a TOS violation is not a risk I want to take at this time). (grin)

However, a few points:

1. The MAC address that Vonage gets is not the same MAC address that is reported to, say, your ISP. MAC address spoofing is available on the GUI interface, but of course Vonage is not "fooled" by it. The MAC address also survives a factory reset, meaning it is stored "deeper" than NVRAM, which would be wiped on a factory reset.

2. While 1.00.60 is available as open source, it does not include a lot of the code, including the Vonage communication code, the wireless drivers, and a few others. Those chunks are provided as binaries that get compiled into the In order to load aftermarket firmware onto these devices, you have to make note of your Vonage SIP username and password, which are stored on the device. The reason for this (as explained on the hacker sites) is that you need to prevent the router from talking to Vonage to get new config files or firmware.

Now, given #1 and #2, it is possible that Vonage's code to load the config file is capable of reading the real MAC address off the ethernet board, and not the one in NVRAM, and since that communications code is not open-sourced, spoofing that seems like a non-trivial task.

Even if, as is likely, the username and password are downloaded from Vonage in the form of the config update, I'd have to see a lot more detail from this presentation to say this is a threat.

Perhaps that's exactly what Arias Hung has done, and if so I agree it's a threat. The cell companies have many of the same issues. Vonage will have a tough row to hoe if this is a real threat, since they can't fix it in firmware without changing the way their servers talk to the RTP300/WRTP54G devices at the same time, since leaving the communications compatible with the current firmware means the vulnerability is still there.

Another oddity, of course, is that the customer is going to notice the theft fairly soon. Vonage is pretty good about only talking to a particular account via one device/IP address, as we've seen from several people who have successfully set up 2 or more devices on a single account. If one Vonage device at one IP address is logged in to the account, the second one will drop. Now, of course, given the quality of the RTP300/WRTP54G devices, maybe someone would half expect their LINE1 light to be out a lot, and would expect to be unable to dial out frequently, but I doubt it. ;)
