I have an attacker who got into my router; he seems to have hacked the Telnet client protocol.

I previously had a Thompson & a Belkin. Both got hacked, Now I have a Netgear 4 cg3000v2 . Optus keeps sending me a new one, cause they keeps getting hacked. The settings I have put up are really strong, yet the attacker keeps getting in.

I added the MAC address to the filters but that doesn't do anything. It's like cologned in my devices. I no it might sound weird but it's true. He is also sending viruses to any device that connects to my router, including iPhones. I've had 6 routers already an I've taken my devices back many times but no matter what I do I can't stop it. I've even blocked ports he uses but he he opens more up.

I have a number of pictures, but do not have enough points to upload them here. You can see them here: http://www.dslreports.com/forum/r30194073-What-s-going-on-Cracker-hacker-Opened-ports

Anyone no how to remove him from my router? Any help will be appreciated.

  • there are many ways you can prevent him from accessing your router via access list or mac filter if you know the attacker mac address . Commented Jul 26, 2015 at 6:53
  • It's unclear what you're asking. You haven't provided anywhere near enough detail.

The way you describe the issue suggests that not the routers are problematic(though many are questionably secure, it is highly unlikely that all models you've used up to now have been compromised).

Try disconnecting the router from the Internet, update its firmware(if possible) and verify all devices within the LAN for any signs of compromise(unexpected connections to remote hosts on non-standard ports, abnormal network activity, etc.).

  • I have replaced all devices an routers an changed service providers. I can't upgrade Optus firmware that's why they keep sending me new routers it isn't the devices netgear always says telnet user logged in or out. The devices r infected because of him.

In my opinion you should give all your devices to a professional cleaning service company. They will get rid of everything.

Then, with a new router, set the settings before connecting to the Internet. Set a very long password with wpa2. (20 letters at least).

On the computers, block the telnet port and turn telnet services off (or tell the guys at the cleaning company to do it). Install Antivirus software on each computer and phone.

Later, after turning on the router, connect with only one computer and see if everything is good and if it doesn't get hacked.

If it's OK, you can start using the other computers. I think this way you should be good to go.
