Unpacking Firmware Images from Cable Modems


Hacking Cable modems used to be very popular during the early 2000’s. People like DerEngel and Isabella from TCNiSO carried lots of research on the topic and talks from bitemytaco (R.I.P) and BlakeSelf during DEFCON 16 and DEFCON 18 covered lots of information on the subject.Securing cable modems is more difficult than other embedded devices because, on most cases, you can’t choose your own device/firmware and software updates are almost entirely controlled by your ISP. Most cable modems offer a limited administrative interface and management commands are sent using SNMP.
