A vulnerability has been reported in Cisco Wireless Access Point, which can be exploited by malicious people to bypass certain security restrictions.
The vulnerability is caused due to an error within the web management interface when the Admin Access configuration has been changed from "Default Authentication" to "Local User List Only". This causes the access point to be re-configured with no security enabled, thus allowing open access to the access point via the web interface or via the console port with no validation of user credentials.
Successful exploitation requires that the web management interface is enabled.
The vulnerability has been reported in the following products when running Cisco IOS Software Release 12.3(8)JA or 12.3(8)JA1:
* 350 Wireless Access Point and Wireless Bridge
* 1100 Wireless Access Point
* 1130 Wireless Access Point
* 1200 Wireless Access Point
* 1240 Wireless Access Point
* 1310 Wireless Bridge
* 1410 Wireless Access Point
Solution: Update to Cisco IOS Software Release 12.3(8)JA2.
