Discovery Status:

Affected Product(s):
Product: ConnectBox - (Wireless) 4.01 - H7465LG-NCIP-

Exploitation Technique:

Severity Level:

Technical Details & Description:
A filter bypass web vulnerability has been discovered in the official Compal Wireless ConnectBox web-application.
The filter bypass web vulnerability allows an attacker to evade the controls of a restriction- or protection mechanism.

The issue allows an attacker to change the wireless passphrase to an insecure passphrase which is forbidden by the applications
javascript engine. The vulnerability affects the `ConnectBox` manufactured by Compal for the local small ISP - Unitymedia.
They are offering high-speed internet access over Cable (TV).

To bypass the filter you only need to replay the POST which changes the wireless passphrase and change the parameters `wlPSkey2g`
and `wlPSkey5g`. The filter won`t allow you to set a passphrase without specialchars or uppercase/lowercase letters. By bypassing
the filter you can set any passphrase (wpa needs at least 8 chars).

The security risk of the filter bypass vulnerability is estimated as medium and the cvss (common vulnerability scoring system) count is 5.8.
Exploitation of the filter bypass vulnerability requires a privileged web-application user account with privileged access and medium user interaction.
Successful exploitation of the vulnerability results in unauthorized access by setting a low secured passphrase key for wpa and wpa2.

Model: CH7465LG-LC
Hardware Version 4.01
Software Version CH7465LG-NCIP-

Proof of Concept (PoC):
The vulnerability can be exploited by remote attackers in the local networka with privileged web-application user account or privileged access and medium user interaction.
For security demonstration or to reproduce the vulnerability follow the provided information or steps below to continue.
