Technical Details:
Vulnerability Details 1. No access control on the remote shell The appliance runs ARM as underlying OS. Telnet access is enabled on TCP port 5000. There is no authentication required for accessing and connecting the remote shell. Any user can connect to the shell and issue commands. 2. Shell services running with excessive privileges (superuser) The service runs with superuser root privileges, thus giving privileged access to any user, without any authentication (exploited via OS Command Injection described nexe). 3. OS Command Injection The remote shell (attempts to) offer a restricted environment, and does not allow executing system commands. However, it is possible to break out of this jailed shell by chaining specific shell meta-characters and OS commands. The service / application is run as 'root' and OS command injection results in full system access.

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
