Vulnerabilities Found in Cisco Routers


There is no workaround, so patch your routers now.

The German security firm, RedTeam Pentesting has found two vulnerabilities in Cisco routers.

The vulnerabilities are found in the web-based management interface of Cisco Small Business RV320 and RV325 Dual Gigabit WAN VPN Routers.

The flaw allows an authenticated, remote attacker with administrative privileges on an affected device to execute arbitrary commands.

According to Cisco, the cause of the vulnerability is due to improper validation of user-supplied input. “An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by sending malicious HTTP POST requests to the web-based management interface of an affected device. A successful exploit could allow the attacker to execute arbitrary commands on the underlying Linux shell as root,” the company said in an advisory.

Cisco has already released a patch to fix these vulnerabilities. If you use any of these two routers, you need to update now.
