This (like anything else) is not going to catch everything.  However, it
will detect any "logon" activity regardless of the method used (assuming it
is not encrypted).

uhm... that's a signature for the banner, not the exploit :)

There are probably exploits that don't require anyone to log into the
router, so you won't see a banner. Exploits that require a login should be
contained by using proper ACLs and access restrictions in the first place.

Or am I missing something here? How is a TCP Option Flag Buffer Overflow
generating a banner?
