DLink DIR < 2.17.b02 (SAP10018)

high Nessus Plugin ID 197733


The remote host is missing a security update.


The version of DLink DIR installed on the remote host is prior to 2.17.b02. It is, therefore, affected by a vulnerability as referenced in the SAP10018 advisory.

- Multiple cross-site request forgery (CSRF) vulnerabilities in D-Link DIR-600 router (rev. Bx) with firmware before 2.17b02 allow remote attackers to hijack the authentication of administrators for requests that (1) create an administrator account or (2) enable remote management via a crafted configuration module to hedwig.cgi, (3) activate new configuration settings via a SETCFG,SAVE,ACTIVATE action to pigwidgeon.cgi, or (4) send a ping via a ping action to diagnostic.php. (CVE-2014-100005)

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


Upgrade DLink DIR based upon the guidance specified in SAP10018.
