The AirSpan WiMAX ProST contains an authentication bypass vulnerability that could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to make arbitrary configuration changes.
The AirSpan WiMAX ProST is customer premise equipment that provides WiMAX wireless networking. The web management interface of the Airspan WiMax ProST does not properly authenticate HTTP POST requests.
By sending HTTP POST requests to a vulnerable ProST device, a remote, unauthenticated attacker may be able to make arbitrary configuration changes. The attacker could potentially disable the device by uploading an invalid firmware image.
