*Netgear Voice Gateway Multiple Vulnerabilities *
 
*Device Info *
Device Type: Netgear Voice Gateway EVG2000
Account Name: EVG2000
Firmware Version: V2.3.0.23_2.3.23
 
*1. Web application vulnerabilities OS Command Injection *
 
Netgear Voice Gateway EVG2000 is managed through a web management portal.
The application provides a Diagnostics feature that has four (4) options:
 
a.Ping an IP address
b.Perform a DNS Lookup
c.Display the Routing Table
d.Reboot the Router
 
Option 1 Ping an IP address was confirmed to be vulnerable to OS Command
Injection.
 
The ping_IPAddr parameter does not sufficiently validate input. It is
possible to use the semi-colon character (;) to inject arbitrary OS
commands and retrieve the output in the application's responses.

*HTTP POST Request*

root:<redacted_hash>:0:0:Linux User,,,:/root/:/bin/sh
nobody:*:0:0nobody:/:/bin/sh
admin:<clear-text-admin-pass>:0:0:admin:/:/bin/sh
 
 
*2. Web application vulnerabilities Stored Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) *
 
In the Services menu, the Service Table lists any existing Service-Port
mappings. A new service can be added with a payload value of
*<script>alert(xss)</script>* in the ServiceType parameter.
 
The application does not check any malicious input and accepted this new
entry. The JavaScript input was then returned unmodified in a subsequent
request for the Services Table Entries.
 
The web application lacks strict input validation and hence is vulnerable
to Stored Cross-Site Scripting attack.
 
 
*3. Application does not secure configured passwords (HTTP) *
 
Any & all configured sensitive information such as passwords & keys are not
secured properly. These are masked and only ***** is shown in the
corresponding fields.
 
This client-side restriction can easily be bypassed though. It is possible
to capture masked values via ‘Inspect Element’ and / or via an intercepting
proxy.
 
The application should mask/censure (*****) the passwords, keys and any
other crucial pieces of configuration and must not pass the values in
clear-text.
