Netgear's Amusing "fix" for WG602v1 Backdoor

An anonymous reader writes "Recently Slashdot reported that the Netgear router 
has as WLAN backdoor. According to this report by the news service of the 
German publisher Heise Netgear "fixed" the problem with a firmware update. 
And what is the fix? According to Heise, they didn't remove the backdoor at 
all. Instead they just changed the login information! They replaced the old 
user name 'super' with 'superman', and changed the old password to 
'21241036'. "

DK KD  I don't approve of political jokes.
DK KD  I've seen too many of them get elected.
