Karn Ganeshen has reported a vulnerability in Sterlite SAM300 AX Router, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting attacks.
Input passed via e.g. the "Stat_Radio" parameter to Forms/status_statistics_1 is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a logged-in user's browser session in context of the web-based administration interface.
Note: This can be used to change certain router settings (e.g. the DNS server), which can be leveraged to conduct further attacks.
Solution: Do not browse untrusted sites or follow untrusted links while being logged-in to the administration interface.
