D-Link Security Updates Fixed Multiple Vulnerabilities in WiFiManager Software

D-Link Security Updates fixed vulnerabilities with Central WiFiManager Software Controller that allows an attacker to execute the code remotely with system permissions.

The vulnerabilities were discovered by Core Security Consulting Services and these vulnerabilities directly impact the software package and put the host computer at risk.

The Central WiFiManager Software Controller aids the network administrators to manage the access point (AP) workflow efficiently. It is an is an innovative approach to the more traditional hardware-based multiple access point management system.

Vulnerabilities – WiFiManager Software

Unauthenticated Remote Code Execution – CVE-2018-17440

The system failed to deny the request for unauthenticated users in accessing the files in the web root. Attackers need to upload a malicious PHP file in sever and need to request it to achieve remote code execution.

Remote Code Execution – CVE-2018-17442

The attacker needs to be an authenticated user here, the exploitation abuses the endpoint functionality. “Our goal is first to obtain the server’s time, upload a .rar with our PHP file, calculate the proper epoch and iterate increasing it until we hit the proper one and remote code execution is achieved.” researchers said.

Cross-Site Scripting Sitename Parameter – CVE-2018-17443

The “sitename” parameter of the UpdateSite endpoint is vulnerable to Cross-Site Scripting.

Cross-Site Scripting Username Parameter- CVE-2018-17441

The “Username” parameter of the addUser endpoint is vulnerable to a stored Cross Site Scripting.

The vulnerabilities are reported by Core Security on 2018-06-04 and D-Link published security updates by 2018-10-04.

Affected version of D-Link Central WiFiManager is Ver. 1.03 for Windows and the bugs fixed with Ver. 1.03R0100- Beta1. D-Link strongly recommends users to update with the new release.
