Hello 3APA3A!

There are Brute Force and Cross-Site Scripting vulnerabilities in D-Link DCS-2103 (IP camera). If previous Path Traversal and Full path disclosure vulnerabilities were post-auth, then these BF and XSS vulnerabilities are pre-auth.

Affected products:

Vulnerable is the next model: D-Link DCS-2103, Firmware 1.0.0. For BF vulnerability version 1.20 and previous versions are vulnerable.

Developers refused to fix BF vulnerability (they think that it's problem of a user to have strong password) and XSS vulnerability was fixed in firmware version 1.20.


Brute Force (WASC-11):


No protection from BF attacks.

Cross-Site Scripting (WASC-08):
