New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it is different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 8.4


The remote host is affected by an authenticated remote code execution vulnerability.


An issue was discovered in GPON ONT Home Gateway Router web administration interface. Remote Command Execution could be triggered by sending a HTTP POST request to 'GponForm/diag_Form' URI with malicious shell script added to dest_host parameter. Because the router saves ping and traceroute command execution results in /tmp and transmits them to the user when the user revisits /diag.html, it's possible to execute arbitrary commands and retrieve their output.
This allows an attacker to fully control the target device.
