An authentication bypass in telnet server in BF-430 and BF431 232/422 TCP/IP Converter, BF-450M and SEMAC from CHIYU Technology Inc allows obtaining a privileged connection with the target device by supplying a specially malformed request and an attacker may force the remote telnet server to believe that the user has already authenticated.
CWE-287 - Improper Authentication
Improper (or broken) authentication attacks are widespread, and have accounted for many of the worst data breaches in recent years. Improper authentication attacks are a class of vulnerabilities where an attacker impersonates a legitimate user by exploiting weaknesses in either session management or credential management to gain access to the user’s account. This can result in disclosure of sensitive information, and can lead to system compromise, theft, identity theft, and fraud.
