Jacek Lipkowski has reported two security issues in various Enterasys Vertical Horizon switches, which can be exploited by malicious people to gain access to a debugging account, and by malicious users to bypass certain security restrictions.
1) The switches have an undocumented default account named "tiger" with a default password used internally for debugging purposes. This can be accessed using telnet or the serial interface.
Successful exploitation provides access to the device's internal command line.
2) Certain debug commands are available for non-administrative users (e.g. guest users).
The security issues has been reported in VH-2402S/S2 running firmware 02.05.00 and 2.05.09.07, and VH-8G running firmware 2.05.08.01. Prior firmware versions may also be affected.
