Trendnet AC2600 TEW-827DRU version 2.08B01 contains an authentication bypass vulnerability. It is possible for an unauthenticated, malicous actor to force the change of the admin password due to a hidden administrative command.
Trendnet AC2600 TEW-827DRU version 2.08B01 contains an security flaw in the web interface. HTTPS is not enabled on the device by default. This results in cleartext transmission of sensitive information such as passwords.
Trendnet AC2600 TEW-827DRU version 2.08B01 makes use of hardcoded credentials. It is possible to backup and restore device configurations via the management web interface. These devices are encrypted using a hardcoded password of "12345678".
Trendnet AC2600 TEW-827DRU version 2.08B01 lacks proper authentication to the bittorrent functionality. If enabled, anyone is able to visit and modify settings and files via the Bittorent web client by visiting: http://192.168.10.1:9091/transmission/web/
Trendnet AC2600 TEW-827DRU version 2.08B01 contains a flaw in the session management for the device. The router’s management software manages web sessions based on IP address rather than verifying client cookies/session tokens/etc. This allows an attacker (whether from a different computer, different web browser on the same machine, etc.) to take over an existing session. This does require the attacker to be able to spoof or take over original IP address of the original user’s session.
Trendnet AC2600 TEW-827DRU version 2.08B01 contains a symlink vulnerability in the bittorrent functionality. If enabled, the bittorrent functionality is vulnerable to a symlink attack that could lead to remote code execution on the device. If an end user inserts a flash drive with a malicious symlink on it that the bittorrent client can write downloads to, then a user is able to download arbitrary files to any desired location on the devices filesystem, which could lead to remote code execution. Example directories vulnerable to this include "config", "downloads", and "torrents", though it should be noted that "downloads" is the only vector that allows for arbitrary files to be downloaded to arbitrary locations.
Quagga Services on D-Link DIR-2640 less than or equal to version 1.11B02 are affected by an absolute path traversal vulnerability that allows a remote, authenticated attacker to set the "message of the day" banner to any file on the system, allowing them to read all or some of the contents of those files. Such sensitive information as hashed credentials, hardcoded plaintext passwords for other services, configuration files, and private keys can be disclosed in this fashion. Improper handling of filenames that identify virtual resources, such as "/dev/urandom" allows an attacker to effect a denial of service attack against the command line interfaces of the Quagga services (zebra and ripd).
Quagga Services on D-Link DIR-2640 less than or equal to version 1.11B02 are affected by an absolute path traversal vulnerability that allows a remote, authenticated attacker to set an arbitrary file on the router’s filesystem as the log file used by either Quagga service (zebra or ripd). Subsequent log messages will be appended to the file, prefixed by a timestamp and some logging metadata. Remote code execution can be achieved by using this vulnerability to append to a shell script on the router’s filesystem, and then awaiting or triggering the execution of that script. A remote, unauthenticated root shell can easily be obtained on the device in this fashion.
Trendnet AC2600 TEW-827DRU version 2.08B01 does not have sufficient access controls for the WAN interface. The default iptables ruleset for governing access to services on the device only apply to IPv4. All services running on the devices are accessible via the WAN interface via IPv6 by default.
Trendnet AC2600 TEW-827DRU version 2.08B01 improperly discloses information via redirection from the setup wizard. Authentication can be bypassed and a user may view information as Admin by manually browsing to the setup wizard and forcing it to redirect to the desired page.
