Severity High
Score 9/10


The Cisco RVS4000 4-port Gigabit Security Router before, PVC2300 Business Internet Video Camera before, WVC200 Wireless-G PTZ Internet Video Camera before, WVC210 Wireless-G PTZ Internet Video Camera before, and WVC2300 Wireless-G Business Internet Video Camera before do not properly restrict read access to passwords, which allows context-dependent attackers to obtain sensitive information, related to (1) access by remote authenticated users to a PVC2300 or WVC2300 via a crafted URL, (2) leveraging setup privileges on a WVC200 or WVC210, and (3) leveraging administrative privileges on an RVS4000, aka Bug ID CSCte64726.

CWE-264 - Permissions Privileges and Access Controls

CWE 264 (permissions, privileges, and access controls) is not a weakness in and of itself, rather it is a category of weaknesses related to the management of permissions, privileges, and other security features used to perform access control. If not addressed, the weaknesses in this category allow attackers to gain privileges for an unintended sphere of control, access sensitive information, and execute arbitrary commands.
