Vulnerability Note VU#972224
Huawei Mobile WiFi E5151 and E5186 routers use insufficiently random values for DNS queries
Huawei Mobile WiFi E5151, firmware version 21.141.13.00.1080, and E5186, firmware version V200R001B306D01C00, use insufficiently random values for DNS queries and are vulnerable to DNS spoofing attacks.
CWE-330: Use of Insufficiently Random Values - CVE-2015-8265
Huawei Mobile WiFi E5151 and E5186 routers use 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 E5151 or E5186 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 E5151 or E5186 LAN clients to contact attacker-controlled hosts.
