Unpatched

CVE Reference(s):

Description


A security issue has been reported in D-Link DWL-2100AP, D-Link DWL-7000AP, and D-Link DWL-7100AP, which can be exploited by malicious people to disclose sensitive information.

The problem is caused due to configuration files being stored insecurely inside the "cgi-bin" directory. This can be exploited to disclose the administrator's username and password, and other device configuration information without being authenticated by requesting the configuration file directly via the web interface.

Example:
http://[host]/cgi-bin/[file].cfg

The security issue has been reported in D-Link DWL-2100AP firmware version 2.10na. Other versions may also be affected.


Solution:
Filter traffic to the web interface of an affected device.

Provided and/or discovered by:
Wendel Guglielmetti Henrique and Intruders Tiger Team Security.
