Vendor : Siemens  
Affected product : Gigaset SE461 WiMAX router  
Firmware version : 1.5-BL024.9.6401  
Propably other firmware versions are affected as well  
Type : Denial of Service  
  
OSVDB :   
Milw0rm :   
CVE :   
ISS X-Force: :   
  
  
After establishing a tcp connection to the affected device on port 53 from the  
LAN interface and after closing the connection the router will restart.  
  
Sometimes when using the web trigger with Internet explorer the WAN  
configuration (ip, gateway ip, dns servers) for the device was lost and a  
hardware reset was needed in order to make the device usable again.   
  
This issue can be triggered from the LAN interface by direct connection or  
by using specially crafted web content. For the web content to be able to  
trigger the issue a browser withouth security restrictions on connection to  
port 53 must be used, the tests done shows Internet Explorer like the only  
one cappable of activating the bug.  
  
Test made worked with Internet explorer version 7.0.6001.18000, it  
didnt worked with Opera version 9.63 build 10476, Mozilla Firefox  
version 3.0.1. nor Chrome 1.0.154.48. The html tags <img>, <link> an <base>  
worked.  
  
  
Steps to reproduce:  
  
# direct connection  
# nc -nvv 192.168.2.1 53  
  
Or force someone into the lan segment of the router to open an html file  
with one of the following tags and wait for the connection to be established  
and closed. After 5 upon 10 seconds the device will reboot.
