Alcatel ADSL Modem vulnerability.

Fri Apr 13 16:52:25 PDT 2001 — Alcatel ADSL Modem vulnerability. While there is currently no known exploit of the Alcatel ADSL Modem vulnerability, we have implemented safeguards to prevent compromise of customer Alcatel ADSL Modems. These include rejecting access to UDP port 7, as well as denying transit of packets with a source address of all 1’s. Please note that the UDP echo service (port 7) has nothing to do with ping, which uses ICMP echo packets. More information about the vulnerability can be found at the San Diego Supercomputing Center:
