HTTP Arbitrary Access vulnerability
A common security flaw (of its time!) was/is the HTTP Arbitrary Access vulnerability. This flaw allowed an external attacker to execute router commands via the web interface.
Cisco devices have a number of privilege levels, these levels start at 0 (User
EXEC) and go up to 100, although mostly only the first 15 are used. Level 15 is
Privileged EXEC mode, the same as enable mode.
By referring to these
levels within the URL of the target device, an attacker could pass commands to
the router and have them execute in Privilege EXEC mode.
Web browse to the Cisco device:
Click cancel to the logon box and enter the following
You may have to
scroll through all of the levels from 16-99 for this to work.
To raise the logging level to only log emergencies:
CLI tool that automatically scrolls through all available privilege levels to identify if any are vulnerable to this attack, this tool is called ios-w3-vuln (although it may have other names.) As well as identifying the vulnerable level, ios-w3-vuln will also attempt to TFTP download the running.config file to a TFTP server running locally.
