D-Link DSL-2740B Router Cross-Site Request Forgery

Date Disclosed:

Date Patched:
D-Link states a fix is estimated to be released in December 2013.


Affected Software:
D-Link DSL-2740B Router

The D-Link DSL-2740B Router contains a Cross-Site Request Forgery vulnerability. This may allow an attacker to perform restricted actions on the device by forcing an authenticated user to unknowingly perform actions on the attacker's behalf. This can be done by maliciously crafting a URL and sending it to a target user.


Code Execution:

Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF)
An attacker may perform restricted actions on a device by socially engineering an already authenticated target user to open a maliciously crafted link. From there, the attacker may compromise certain settings and features of the router.

No mitigations are currently available.

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