RouterSploit is an open-source security tool designed to identify and exploit vulnerabilities in routers and other network devices. It's written in Python.

RouterSploit Usage Examples

RouterSploit has a number of exploits for different router models and they have the ability to check whether the remote target is vulnerable before sending off an exploit:

rsf > use exploits/multi/misfortune_cookie
rsf (Misfortune Cookie) > show options

Target options:

   Name       Current settings     Description
   ----       ----------------     -----------
   port       80                   Target port
   target                          Target address e.g.

rsf (Misfortune Cookie) > set target
[+] {'target': ''}
rsf (Misfortune Cookie) > check
[-] Target is not vulnerable
rsf (Misfortune Cookie) >

If stealth is not a requirement, you can attempt to use the autopwn scanner module to see if any vulnerabilities can be found:

rsf > use scanners/autopwn
rsf (AutoPwn) > show options

Target options:

   Name       Current settings     Description
   ----       ----------------     -----------
   port       80                   Target port
   target                          Target IP address e.g.

rsf (AutoPwn) > set target
[+] {'target': ''}
rsf (AutoPwn) > run

If all else fails, RouterSploit has a number of creds modules that can brute force various services, including HTTP, SSH, and Telnet:

rsf > use creds/http_basic_bruteforce
rsf (HTTP Basic Bruteforce) > show options

Target options:

   Name       Current settings     Description

Packages and Binaries:


This package contains an open-source exploitation framework dedicated to embedded devices. It consists of various modules that aids penetration testing operations:

  • exploits - modules that take advantage of identified vulnerabilities.

  • creds - modules designed to test credentials against network services.

  • scanners - modules that check if target is vulnerable to any exploit.

  • payloads - modules that are responsible for generating payloads for various architectures and injection points.

  • generic - modules that perform generic attacks.
