Find, fix and prevent vulnerabilities in your applications, infrastructure and computers.

CVE-2017-13718 Summary

The HTTP API supported by Starry Station (aka Starry Router) allows brute forcing the PIN setup by the user on the device, and this allows an attacker to change the Wi-Fi settings and PIN, as well as port forward and expose any internal device's port to the Internet. It was identified that the device uses custom Python code called "rodman" that allows the mobile appication to interact with the device. The APIs that are a part of this rodman Python file allow the mobile application to interact with the device using a secret, which is a uuid4 based session identifier generated by the device the first time it is set up. However, in some cases, these APIs can also use a security code. This security code is nothing but the PIN number set by the user to interact with the device when using the touch interface on the router. This allows an attacker on the Internet to interact with the router's HTTP interface when a user navigates to the attacker's website, and brute force the credentials. Also, since the device's server sets the Access-Control-Allow-Origin header to "*", an attacker can easily interact with the JSON payload returned by the device and steal sensitive information about the device.

  • Mageni Vulnerability Platform Features

    Mageni's Platform provides the features to help you find, prioritize, remediate and manage the vulnerabilities.

    Vulnerability Scanning

    Vulnerability scanning is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT assets are identified. Mageni's Platform can help you to identify the vulnerabilities in your IT environment.

    • Vulnerability detection: CVE, CPE, CVSS, OVAL
    • Network scans: WMI, LDAP, HTTP, SMB, SSH, TCP, UDP, and more.
    • Scan Policies compliant with PCI DSS, NIST, ISO 27001
    • Network integration: SMTP (Email), SNMP, SysLog, LDAP, NTP, DHCP, IPv4/IPv6

    Vulnerability Management

    Vulnerability management is the "cyclical practice of identifying, classifying, prioritizing, remediating, and mitigating" software vulnerabilities and is integral to computer security and network security. Mageni's Platform can help you to:

    • Classify the vulnerabilities
    • Prioritize the remediation
    • Mitigate the vulnerabilities
    • Reduce false positives and false negatives

    An efficient remediaton workflow

    Using the CVSS (Common Vulnerability Scoring System) which is the standard for security rating and scoring of the vulnerabilities, Mageni's Platform can help you remediate and mitigate the vulnerabilities in a timely fashion.

    • Create and assign tickets
    • Comment the vulnerabilities to insert notes
    • Override the score and results
    • Find the proactively closed vulnerabilities

    Increase security efficiency and intelligence

    With powerful dashboards that processes and analyzes the security vulnerabilities providing a central and customizable location for users to access, interact and analyze up-to-date security information you can make smarter, data-driven decisions. On the dashboard, you can:

    • Add, remove and customize the dashboard.
    • Access to the most fresh vulnerability data.
    • Prioritize the remediation of your vulnerabilities.
    • Focus on the most important vulnerabilities.

    A complete vulnerability database

    The platform ships with a complete and thorough vulnerability assessment database. Through its auto-update system, it continuously kept up-to-date with information about newly released security updates making easier for you to keep track of the latest vulnerabilities that affect your infrastructure.

    • More than 66,200 vulnerability scanning plugins
    • More than 355,875 CPE (Common Platform Enumeration)
    • More than 123,629 CVE (Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures)
    • More than 28,175 OVAL (Open Vulnerability and Assessment Language).
