Buffalo Routers Multiple Vulnerabilities (TRA-2021-13)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 152198
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote device is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


Nessus was able to determine that the remote Buffalo device is affected by multiple vulnerabilities:
- A path traversal vulnerability in the web interfaces of certain Buffalo router models could allow unauthenticated remote attackers to bypass authentication. (CVE-2021-20090)

- The web interfaces of certain Buffalo router models do not properly sanitize user input. An authenticated remote attacker could leverage this vulnerability to alter device configuration, potentially gaining remote code execution. (CVE-2021-20091)

- The web interfaces of certain Buffalo router models do not properly restrict access to sensitive information from an unauthorized actor. (CVE-2021-20092)

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Vendor has released fixes for certain models. Contact vendor for more information.
