Vulnerabilities details
Hard-coded username and password – telnet

Hard-coded username and password – Web server
In /app/www/doc/script/login.js, in the function DoLogin(), client side validation is used to login a user:


A user can login with these credentials and can then take control of the device over http.

The binary has a set of commands he can run – if a user will use the following “protocol”, command to be run is enclosed like html tags, i.e. <system>id</system>, a successful execution results in <system_ack>ok</system_ack>.
