Cablecom Wi-Fi has Weak Password

When I received my new cablecom router I noticed that the default password was only 8 letters and UPPERCASE. A combinations that can be cracked by modern graphics card. So please change it if you are still using the default password.

After capturing the WPA handshake with aircrack brute force it on the GPU with hashcat. My hashcat settings was cudaHashcat64.exe -m 2500 -a 3 file ?u?u?u?u?u?u?u?u. You can close the application and resume later with cudaHashcat64.exe --restore

I didn’t actually hack any Wi-Fi because the power consumption would have cost me 35.70 CHF.
