============ Vulnerability Overview: ============

  • OS Command Execution:

parameter: maxmtu

The vulnerability is caused by missing input validation in the maxmtu parameter and can be exploited to inject and execute arbitrary shell commands. It is possible to use Netcat to fully compromise the device.


It is possible to shorten the URL to the following:


There is Netcat preinstalled on the device. It is a very small edition of netcat, so you have to play a bit with it but you will get it ;)

  • stored XSS:

Box Control -> Configuration -> Webserver -> User, Password

parameter: AuthUser, AuthPassword

Box Control -> Configuration -> Settings

parameter: audiochannelspriority

Injecting scripts into the parameter audiochannelspriority reveals that this parameter is not properly validated for malicious input.
