Summary

CVE-2023-49255 is a cyber vulnerability that affects router consoles. It allows unauthorized access to the "data" field without authentication, and while modification of the configuration requires a logged-in user, the session state is shared. This means that an anonymous user can execute commands in the context of an authenticated user if they are currently logged in. If the logged-in user has administrative privileges, it is possible to create a new admin user with a chosen password using webadmin service configuration commands. The vulnerability has a high severity rating and poses a potential danger to organizations as it can lead to unauthorized access and compromise of sensitive information. To remediate this vulnerability, it is recommended to apply authentication measures to the router console and ensure that only authorized users have administrative privileges.
