Rockwell Automation MicroLogix 1100 PLC < FRN 10.0 Authentication Mechanism DoS

Synopsis :

The remote web server running on the MicroLogix 1100 PLC is affected
by an denial of service vulnerability in the web server's password

Description :

The Rockwell Automation MicroLogix 1100 PLC integrated web server is
a firmware version that is prior to FRN 10.0. It is, therefore,
affected by a denial of service vulnerability due to a failure of the
authentication mechanism to properly handle remote connections or
commands. A remote attacker can exploit this, using a crafted request,
to cause the product to enter a predefined fault mode, resulting in
the device being reset to a factory-default state.

Note that Nessus has not attempted to exploit this issue but has
instead relied only on the self-reported version number.
