The LG-Nortel ELO GS24M switch web management interface authentication can be bypassed by accessing URL's for configuration web pages directly. Web pages exist that can download the current device configuration that also includes credentials in cleartext.
A remote unauthenticated attacker may be able to operate and configure the device with the permissions of an administrator.
This product is considered end-of-life by the vendor and is no longer supported. Please consider the following workaround:
Implement appropriate firewall rules to only allow trusted sources to access the web management interface of the device.
