D-Link DIR-865L Cross-Site Request Forgery

Date Disclosed:

Date Patched:

D-Link Corporation

Affected Software:
D-Link DIR865L router (firmware version 1.03 and earlier)

D-Link DIR865L routers contain multiple cross-site request forgery (CSRF) vulnerabilities in all HTML forms present in the 1.03 firmware. These CSRF vulnerabilities may allow an attacker to take complete control of the affected device, provided that the target user has an active management session with the router. Exploitation may take place by convincing a target to click a malicious link, browse to a malicious website, or have a compromised network through which a man-in-the-middle attack may be performed.


Code Execution:
Yes: Arbitrary Web Commands

Cross-Site Request Forgery
Exploitation of this vulnerability is possible via forged HTML forms, sent to a victim through a number of different attack vectors (including malicious links). Attackers who successfully exploit this vulnerability may be able to take complete control of the affected device, including the ability to change arbitrary settings, such as the username and password for administering the vulnerable device. 

Update DIR865L firmware to v1.05b07.

BeyondTrust's Retina® Network Security Scanner scans devices to detect for this vulnerability.
