|Title:||D-Link DAP-1520 < 1.10b04Beta02 RCE Vulnerability|
|Summary:||D-Link DAP-1520 is prone to a remote code execution vulnerability.|
D-Link DAP-1520 is prone to a remote code execution vulnerability.
D-Link DAP-1520 is prone to a buffer overflow vulnerability. Whenever a user
performs a login action from the web interface, the request values are being forwarded to the ssi binary. On the
login page, the web interface restricts the password input field to a fixed length of 15 characters. The problem
is that validation is being done on the client side, hence it can be bypassed. When an attacker manages to
intercept the login request (POST based) and tampers with the vulnerable parameter (log_pass), to a larger
length, the request will be forwarded to the webserver. This results in a stack-based buffer overflow. A few
other POST variables, (transferred as part of the login request) are also vulnerable: html_response_page and
D-Link DAP-1520 version 1.10B04 and prior.
Update to version 1.10b04Beta02 or later.
