# CVE-2023-51119
Improper Access Control on D-Link DIR-605L router

## Exploitation explanation:
Due to an incorrect access control, a takeover can be done over the admin account without any kind of authentication sending a request under special circumstances (only needs a legitimate admin to be logged in)

Actually, any router's doable action on the web configuration panel can be done including the change of the admin's password (leading into the takeover)

This exploit automatize the entire process to set any password for admin user on the router

Happy hacking :)
