Trango Systems Backdoor Root Account

Trango Systems Backdoor Root Account
Posted Nov 12, 2016
Authored by Ian Ling

Trango devices all have a built-in, hidden root account, with a default password that is the same across many devices and software revisions. This account is accessible via ssh and grants access to the underlying embedded unix OS on the device, allowing full control over it. Recent software updates for some models have changed this password, but have not removed this backdoor.

CVE Reference:
==============
N/A

Vulnerability Details:
=====================

Trango devices all have a built-in, hidden root account, with a default
password that is the same across many devices and software revisions.
This account is accessible via ssh and grants access to the underlying
embedded unix OS on the device, allowing full control over it. Recent
software updates for some models have changed this password, but have
not removed this backdoor. See source above for details on how the
password was found.

The particular password I found is 9 characters, all lowercase, no
numbers: "bakergiga"
Their support team informed me that there is a different password on
newer devices.

The password I found works on the following devices:

-Apex <= 2.1.1 (latest)
-ApexLynx < 2.0
-ApexOrion < 2.0
-ApexPlus <= 3.2.0 (latest)
-Giga <= 2.6.1 (latest)
-GigaLynx < 2.0
-GigaOrion < 2.0
-GigaPlus <= 3.2.3 (latest)
-GigaPro <= 1.4.1 (latest)
-StrataLink < 3.0
-StrataPro - all versions?

Impact:
The remote attacker has full control over the device, including shell
access. This can lead to packet sniffing and tampering, bricking the
device, and use in botnets.
