prophet Posted October 11, 2017 Share Posted October 11, 2017 Hi I googled a bit and tried to see if anyone would have tried to hack this older model of SanDisk Connect. Anyways the search turned out empty so here is what I did to gain root access. Device has telnet on even the latest firmware. You can connect to it and login with you admin account and password. After that I had access to the shadow file and then I just brute forced the password. Anyways after that I can login to the telnet session with root and used this password: "sqn1351" That password also allows root access to FTP. This site seemed to popup when I googled so if anyone else wants to have a go on this device let me save you some time and there should be the password. I'd be interested to hear from others if they too have this hardcoded password for root. I assume for at least this device the password is the same. TBH I would also try on the newer stick models. Quickly about the device: It's 32GB or 64GB wifi storage device with full size SD card slot. It runs Linux and has 128mb of ram. It's Armv7 device. I bought new for 15€ so they are really neat devices now since they are so cheap. Ps. I don't know if this is the right place to post this so sorry about if I posted to wrong place. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
