    So this problem resides in the Embedded OS and how it was built, not in the device itself.

    Linksys WRT54G H/W-5 F/W-1.00.4 NO
    Is not vulnerable, but if you install OpenWRT, DD-WRT, or PFSense it is now vulnerable.
    And the list is by no means complete. If it wasn't tested your in the dark.

    The Linksys WRT54GL is listed as vulnerable but no hardware of firmware version is given. I wonder if the standard firmware is affected?
