Cisco RV132W and RV134W Remote Code Execution and Denial of Service
Advisory ID: cisco-sa-20180207-rv13x
First Published: 2018 February 7 16:00 GMT
Version 1.0: Final
Workarounds: No workarounds available
Cisco Bug IDs: CSCvg92737
CVSS Score: Base 9.8
A vulnerability in the web interface of the Cisco RV132W ADSL2+ Wireless-N VPN
and RV134W VDSL2 Wireless-AC VPN Routers could allow an unauthenticated, remote
attacker to execute arbitrary code and gain full control of an affected system,
including issuing commands with root privileges. The attacker could also cause
an affected system to reload, resulting in a denial of service (DoS) condition.
The vulnerability is due to an incomplete input validation on user-controlled
input in an HTTP request to the targeted device. An attacker could exploit this
vulnerability by sending a crafted HTTP request to an affected system. A
successful exploit could allow the attacker to execute arbitrary code as the
root user and gain full control of the affected system or cause it to reload,
resulting in a DoS condition.
