Vulnerability Note VU#763576
Amped Wireless R10000 router contains multiple vulnerabilities
Amped Wireless R10000 router, firmware version 188.8.131.52, uses default credentials, is vulnerable to cross-site request forgery, and uses insufficiently random values for DNS queries.
CWE-255: Credentials Management - CVE-2015-7277
The Amped Wireless R10000 web administration interface uses non-random default credentials of admin:admin. A local area network attacker can gain privileged access to a vulnerable device's web management interfaces or leverage default credentials in remote attacks such as cross-site request forgery.
A remote, unauthenticated attacker may be able to spoof DNS responses to cause R10000 LAN clients to contact attacker-controlled hosts or induce an authenticated user into making an unintentional request to the web server that will be treated as an authentic request. A local area network attacker can take complete control of a device using default admin credentials.
The CERT/CC is currently unaware of a practical solution to this problem. Until these vulnerabilities are addressed, users should consider the following workarounds.
Restrict access and use strong passwords
