ZTE ZXV10 W300 Wireless Router Hard-coded Password

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 72813


The remote device is using a known set of hard-coded credentials.


Nessus was able to login to the remote device using a known hard-coded password (prepended with a portion of the device's MAC address obtained from an SNMP request) for the admin account. Attackers can exploit this vulnerability to gain full control of the device.


There is no known fix. As a workaround, use firewall rules to block SNMP and telnet access.
