Vulnerability Description

Certain Precidia Ether232 devices contain memory overwrite and authentication flaws.

Solution Description

At this point in time, Precidia Technologies has not provided a firmware upgrade addressing the memory corruption flaw. As a workaround, Precidia Technologies suggests that users disable the web server on the device through the serial or telnet configuration interface.
