Hardware components from Broadcom can be found in numerous devices from leading vendors such as Cisco, DD-WRT or Linksys. ONEKEY recently reported that significant vulnerabilities lie deep in the software development kit (SDK). The ONEKEY Research Lab team exposed vulnerabilities that have been a common thread throughout products built on Broadcom for more than a decade, providing a welcome entryway for hackers.
In addition to the issue of the unmonitored supply chain — i.e., the use of hardware without prior risk verification — what stands out here is how serious the consequences of copy-paste engineering can be: Although Broadcom published a patch as early as 2011, leading manufacturers repeatedly built these vulnerabilities into products as they rely on a faulty version of the SDK.
ONEKEY is the leading European platform for analyzing device firmware, and regularly uncovers vulnerabilities at component or device manufacturers.
