How to Save Your Old Routers by Recovering Their Default Passwords!

Once upon a time, deep in a dark, dusty attic, there lurked a router that had been forgotten and unused for ages. Abandoned by everyone, it remained steadfastly loyal to its default password. If only someone had the audacity to give it a second chance…

Well, today is its grand day, all thanks to a default password finder known as Default Credentials Cheat Sheet.

Default Credentials Cheat Sheet serves as a comprehensive compilation of default credentials for a wide array of network-based devices. It aids pentesters and hackers in logging in as administrators to old hardware. Drawing on projects like changeme, routersploit, and Seclists, it boasts a substantial database and is compatible with Kali Linux, Ubuntu, Lubuntu, and their derivatives.

To install this tool, enter the following command into your terminal:

pip3 install defaultcreds-cheat-sheet

The features of this tool include password searching, record updating, data exporting, and a search tool named Pass Station.

Once installed, using creds is straightforward. Open a terminal and enter the following command, specifying the hardware you are interested in:

creds search linksys

To update the database:

creds update

Or export the credentials you are interested in:

creds search linksys export

This tool grants you access to your old devices, breathing new life into them once more.
