Title: KZTech/JatonTec/Neotel JT3500V 4G LTE CPE 2.0.1 Privilege Escalation
Advisory ID: ZSL-2021-5645
Type: Local/Remote
Impact: Privilege Escalation
Risk: (4/5)
Release Date: 18.03.2021
Summary
JT3500V is a most advanced LTE-A Pro CAT12 indoor Wi-Fi & VoIP CPE product specially designed to enable quick and easy LTE fixed data service deployment for residential and SOHO customers. It provides high speed LAN, Wi-Fi and VoIP integrated services to end users who need both bandwidth and multi-media data service in residential homes or enterprises. The device has 2 Gigabit LAN ports, 1 RJ11 analog phone port, high performance 4x4 MIMO and CA capabilities, 802.11b/g/n/ac dual band Wi-Fi, advanced routing and firewall software for security. It provides an effective all-in-one solution to SOHO or residential customers. It can deliver up to 1Gbps max data throughput which can be very competitive to wired broadband access service.
Description
The application suffers from a privilege escalation vulnerability. The non-privileged default user (user:user123) can elevate his/her privileges by sending a HTTP GET request to the configuration export endpoint and disclose the admin password. Once authenticated as admin, an attacker will be granted access to the additional and privileged pages.
