Searching the internet lead me to your Sony BDP-S5100 hack. Thinking the vulnerability might exist in my player as well, I attempted to use it on mine. It did not result in telnet to the BDP-S1700 being available, but looking at the folder on the flash drive afterwards shows that the file "vudu.txt" had been deleted.
I suspect that the vulnerability exists, but that the script needs to be modified to be specific to the BDP-S1700 for it to work. As with the BDP-S5100 the GPL software for the player is available at:
Unfortunately I don't know which of the code to inspect to determine how the script can be modified for it to work on the BDP-S1700 I have. Can someone take a look and suggest how I need to modify it? Can someone suggest which code I need to inspect and what I need to look for?
Thanks in advance for any assistance in this matter.
PS: I had a thought that might assist my efforts, assuming that the script is being executed in place. I have modified the script to dump the mounts and settings to files in the working directory. If this works I should find those files after attempting to run this again. Of course if the scrpt is copied elsewhere to run this will yield nothing.
