Exploit for 0day linksys unauthenticated remote code execution
vulnerability.  As exploited by TheMoon worm; Discovered in
the wild on Feb 13, 2013 by Johannes Ullrich.

I was hoping this would stay under-wraps until a firmware
patch could be released, but it appears the cat is out of the bag...

Since it's now public, here's my take on it.

Exploit written by Rew.
(Yes I know, everyone hates PHP.  Deal with it :P )

Currently only working over the LAN.  I think there may be an
iptables issue or something.  Left as an exercise to the reader.

Based on "strings" output on TheMoon worm binary, the
following devices may be vulnerable.  This list may not be
accurate and/or complete!!!
