Hello 3APA3A!

I want to warn you about security vulnerabilities in ADSL modem Callisto 821+ (SI2000 Callisto821+ Router).

These are Cross-Site Request Forgery vulnerabilities. In April I've already drew attention of Ukrtelecom's representative (and this modem was bough at Ukrtelecom) about multiple vulnerabilities in this model of Callisto modems (and other models also could be affected).

These attacks should be conducted on modem owner, which is logged into control panel. Taking into account that it's unlikely to catch him in this state, then it's possible to use before-mentioned vulnerabilities (http://websecurity.com.ua/5161/) for conducting of remote login (for logining him into control panel). After that it's possible to conduct CSRF attack.


This vulnerability allows to open remote (external) access to admin panel. By default access is possible only from local computer (and LAN), but at turning this option on it's possible to enter into admin panel from Internet. At that the time is set on which remote access is opened.


This vulnerability allows to conduct modem restart and reset to factory default settings.


Vulnerable is the next model: SI2000 Callisto821+ Router: X7821 Annex A v1.0.0.0 / Argon 4x1 CSP v1.0 (ISOS 9.0) [4.3.4-5.1]. This model with other firmware and also other models of Callisto also must be vulnerable.

I mentioned about these vulnerabilities at my site (http://websecurity.com.ua/5172/).
