Improper Neutralization of Special Elements used in an OS Command ('OS Command Injection')
The Telus Wi-Fi Hub (PRV65B444A-S-TS) with firmware version 3.00.20 is affected by an authenticated command injection vulnerability in multiple parameters passed to tr69_cmd.cgi. A remote attacker connected to the router's LAN and authenticated with a super user account, or using a bypass authentication vulnerability like CVE-2021-20090 could leverage this issue to run commands or gain a shell as root on the target device.
CWE-78 - OS Command Injection
The OS command injection weakness (also known as shell injection) is a vulnerability which enables an attacker to run arbitrary OS commands on a server. This is done by modifying the intended downstream OS command and injecting arbitrary commands, enabling the execution of unauthorized OS commands. This has the potential to fully compromise the application along with all of its data, and, if the compromised process does not follow the principle of least privileges, it may compromise other parts of the hosting infrastructure as well. This weakness is listed as number ten in the 'CWE Top 25 Most Dangerous Software Weaknesses'.
