WE HAZ A SOURCE CODE! link Source code

By sniffing the communication between the decoder and the Tele2 modem while it was updating we extracted a copy of the samsung.img firmware file.

We were able to extract the root password from this firmware image by bruteforcing the shadow file.

The credentials are:

Username: root

password: t1days

The SMT-6010E is a Digital Decoder ... blabla bla

Gaining Access


I've currently connected the digital decoder to the ft232rl chip on my arduino (usb <-> rs232 conversion).


+------+ TX

| heat | RX

| sink | GND

+------+ VCC(3.3v)

After pressing 'Enter', the console asks me for a username and a password. Unfortunately, the password isn't easy to guess
