Cisco Released Security Updates for 2 Vulnerabilities that allows Hackers to Compromise Cisco Wireless Routers

Cisco released security updates for 2 severe vulnerabilities that affected Cisco wireless VPN, Firewall and Cisco Webex Meetings Desktop App.

First one is a remote command execution vulnerability that has been marked as “Critical” and another one is local Command Injection Vulnerability which is marked as “high” severity.

Remote Command Execution Vulnerability CVE-2019-1663 affected Cisco RV110W, RV130W, and RV215W Routers Wireless-N VPN and Firewall management interface allows remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on an vulnerable device.

Another local command injection vulnerability CVE-2019-1674 that affected Cisco Webex Meetings Desktop App and Cisco Webex Productivity Tools allow local attackers to execute arbitrary commands as a privileged user.

Remote command execution flaw affected the Cisco Wireless VPN & Firewall based routers due to improper validation of user-supplied data in the web-based management interface.

According to Cisco released notes. This vulnerability CVE-2019-1663 affects all releases of the following Cisco products prior to those listed in Fixed Releases:

  • RV110W Wireless-N VPN Firewall
  • RV130W Wireless-N Multifunction VPN Router
  • RV215W Wireless-N VPN Router

Remote attackers exploit this vulnerability by sending malicious HTTP requests to a targeted device and gained the complete control of the
affected device with high priviledge.

Another local command injection vulnerability affects all Cisco Webex Meetings Desktop App releases prior to 33.6.6, and Cisco Webex Productivity Tools Releases 32.6.0 and later prior to 33.0.7.

This Webex vulnerability is due to insufficient validation of user-supplied parameters. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by invoking the update service command with a crafted argument.

First Vulnerability reported by Yu Zhang and Haoliang Lu at the GeekPwn conference and another local command injection flaw reported by
Marcos Accossatto of SecureAuth.

Cisco advised users to immediately apply these patches immediately to keep the network safe and secure.

Live API Attack Simulation

94% of organizations experience security problems in production APIs, and one in five suffers a data breach. As a result, cyber-attacks on APIs increased from 35% in 2022 to 46% in 2023, and this trend continues to rise.
Key takeaways include:

  • An exploit of OWASP API Top 10 vulnerability
  • A brute force ATO (Account Takeover) attack on API
  • A DDoS attack on an API
  • Positive security model automation to prevent API attacks
