Vulnerability Note VU#930956

Multiple ANTlabs InnGate models allow unauthenticated read/write to filesystem

Original Release date: 26 Mar 2015 | Last revised: 26 Mar 2015


ANTlabs InnGate is a gateway device designed for operating corporate guest/visitor networks. Multiple models and firmware versions of the InnGate has been shown to allow read/write access to remote unauthenticated users via a misconfigured rsync instance.


CWE-276: Incorrect Default Permissions

The instance of rsync included with the InnGate firmware is incorrectly configured to allow the entire filesystem to be read/write without authentication. A remote unauthenticated attacker may read or modify any file on the device's filesystem. More details can be found in a blog post from Cylance, Inc.

Devices containing affected firmware include:

  • IG 3100 model 3100, model 3101
  • InnGate 3.00 E-Series, 3.01 E-Series, 3.02 E-Series, 3.10 E-Series
  • InnGate 3.01 G-Series, 3.10 G-Series


A remote unauthenticated attacker may read or modify any file on the device's filesystem.


Update the firmware
According to the ANTlabs Security Advisory, a software update addressing this vulnerability has been released. Users are encouraged to upgrade affected devices' software as soon as possible. Affected users may contact ANTlabs Support ( for more information or to obtain the software update.

If a firmware update is currently not possible, the following workaround may help mitigate this issue.
