Backdoor found in D-Link router firmware code

Backdoor found in D-Link router firmware code | SysFlash | Scoop.it
SysFlash's insight:


The backdoor could be used to modify a router's settings, a dangerous vulnerability

A backdoor found in firmware used in several D-Link routers could allow an attacker to change a device's settings, a serious security problem that could be used for surveillance.

The vulnerability found by the researchers says that, the web interface for some D-Link routers could be accessed if a browser's user agent string is set to xmlset_roodkcableoj28840ybtide.

Curiously, if the second half of the user agent string is reversed and the number is removed, it reads edit by joel backdoor, suggesting it was intentionally placed there.

The developers realized that some programs/services needed to be able to change the device's settings automatically. Realizing that the web server already had all the code to change these settings, they decided to just send requests to the web server whenever they needed to change something.

The only problem was that the web server required a username and password, which the end user could change.

With access to a router's settings, an attacker could potentially steer someone's Internet traffic through another their own server and read their unencrypted data traffic.

To find other vulnerable D-Link router models, Researchers used a special search engine called Shodan, which is designed to find any device connected to the Internet, ranging from refrigerators to CCTV cameras to routers.

The affected models likely include D-Link's DIR-100, DI-524, DI-524UP, DI-604S, DI-604UP, DI-604+, TM-G5240 and possibly the DIR-615. The same firmware is also used in the BRL-04UR and BRL-04CW routers made by Planex.

Researchers warns the users to upgrade the firmware to latest version in order to protect the router settings.
