Microhard Systems 3G/4G Cellular Ethernet And Serial Gateway Remote Root

Microhard Systems 3G/4G Cellular Ethernet and Serial Gateway systems suffer from multiple authenticated arbitrary remote code execution vulnerabilities with highest privileges. This is due to multiple hidden and undocumented features within the admin interface that allows an attacker to create crontab jobs and/or modify the system startup script that allows execution of arbitrary code as root user. Many versions are affected.

The new VIP4Gb provides a rugged, industrial strength wireless solution using 4G LTE
network infrastructure for critical data communications. The VIP4Gb provides simultaneous
network connections for 802.11a/b/g/n WiFi devices, 4 x 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports, Digital
I/O, and a RS232/RS485 port, resulting in a communication device that can be deployed in
any application! The VIP4Gb is a powerful 4G LTE device compatible on any cellular network.
It provides robust and secure wireless communication of Serial, Ethernet & WiFi data.

Desc: The application suffers from multiple authenticated arbitrary remote code execution
vulnerabilities with highest privileges. This is due to multiple hidden and undocumented
features within the admin interface that allows an attacker to create crontab jobs and/or
modify the system startup script that allows execution of arbitrary code as root user.
