1. Admin password disclosure (CVE-2016-5649)
A vulnerability is in the 'BSW_cxttongr.htm' page which can allow a remote
attacker to access this page without any authentication. When processed, it
exposes adminas password in clear text before it gets redirected to
absw_vfysucc.cgia. An attacker can use this password to gain administrator
access of the targeted routeras web interface.

Netgear has released firmware version for DGN2200 & for
DGND3700 to address this issue

2. SSID & wireless key Disclosure (CVE-2016-5638)
There are few web pages associated with the genie app. Genie app adds some
capabilities over the Web GUI and can be accessed even when you are away
from home. A remote attacker can access genie_ping.htm or genie_ping2.htm
or genie_ping3.htm page without authentication. Once accessed, the page
will be redirected to the aCongratulations2.htma page, which reveals some
sensitive information such as 2.4GHz & 5GHz Wireless Network Name (SSID)
and Network Key (Password) in clear text.

Affected Models:
Netgear WNDR4500 running firmware version V1.0.1.40_1.0.68
