Dumping the Firmware from the device Using buspirate

One of the best way to get the firmware from the hardware


While doing penetration testing there are scenarios in which we need to dump the firmware from the devices.This method is typically used when there are no firmware’s available from vendor site. Today we are going to show you how to dump the firmware from an Wireless router Binatone DT 850W Software and hardware Requirements:
BuspirateUbuntu 16.04 or any other Linux machineFlashrom toolSOIC cable pin 8Buspirate connectors


This is a Wireless router from Binatone DT 850W which will be used as an example for dumping the firmware.
Let’s us Analyze the Inside Device.You can see IC chips like EEPROM, UART pins and Ralink CPU and also some OtherIC chips Let us focus mainly on the EEPROM chip (winbond W25Q16). What is EEPROM: EEPROM (also written E2PROM and pronounced “e-e-prom”, “double-e-prom” or “e-squared-prom”) stands for electrically erasable programmable read-only memory and is a type of non-volatile memory used in computers and other e…
