Dumping the Firmware from the device Using buspirate - SPI

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: Buspirate Ubuntu 16.04 or any other Linux machine Flashrom tool SOIC cable pin 8 Buspirate 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 Other   IC  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 program
