Netgear G54/N150 Wireless Router WNR1000v3 uses insufficiently random values for DNS queries
Netgear G54/N150 Wireless Router WNR1000v3, firmware version 188.8.131.52 and possibly earlier, uses insufficiently random values for DNS queries and is vulnerable to DNS spoofing attacks.
CWE-330: Use of Insufficiently Random Values - CVE-2015-8263
The Netgear G54/N150 Wireless Router WNR1000v3 uses static source ports for all DNS queries originating from the local area network (LAN). An attacker with the ability to spoof DNS responses can cause WNR1000v3 LAN clients to contact incorrect or malicious hosts under the attacker's control.
A remote, unauthenticated attacker may be able to spoof DNS responses to cause WNR1000v3 LAN clients to contact attacker-controlled hosts.
The CERT/CC is currently unaware of a practical solution to this problem.
