This affects D7800 before 220.127.116.11, EX2700 before 18.104.22.168, WN3000RPv2 before 22.214.171.124, WN3000RPv3 before 126.96.36.199, LBR1020 before 188.8.131.52, LBR20 before 184.108.40.206, R6700AX before 220.127.116.11, R7800 before 18.104.22.168, R8900 before 22.214.171.124, R9000 before 126.96.36.199, RAX10 before 188.8.131.52, RAX120v1 before 184.108.40.206, RAX120v2 before 220.127.116.11, RAX70 before 18.104.22.168, RAX78 before 22.214.171.124, XR450 before 126.96.36.199, XR500 before 188.8.131.52, and XR700 before 184.108.40.206.
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'.
