CVSS Score:


  o A vulnerability in the web-based management interface of the Cisco RV110W
    Wireless-N VPN Firewall, Cisco RV130W Wireless-N Multifunction VPN Router,
    and Cisco RV215W Wireless-N VPN Router could allow an unauthenticated,
    remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on an affected device.

    The vulnerability is due to improper validation of user-supplied data in
    the web-based management interface. An attacker could exploit this
    vulnerability by sending malicious HTTP requests to a targeted device. A
    successful exploit could allow the attacker to execute arbitrary code on
    the underlying operating system of the affected device as a high-privilege

    Cisco has released software updates that address this vulnerability. There
    are no workarounds that address this vulnerability.

Affected Products

  o Vulnerable Products

    This vulnerability affects all releases of the following Cisco products
    prior to those listed in Fixed Releases :
       RV110W Wireless-N VPN Firewall
       RV130W Wireless-N Multifunction VPN Router
       RV215W Wireless-N VPN Router
    The web-based management interface of these devices is available through a
    local LAN connection or the remote management feature. By default, the
    remote management feature is disabled for these devices.
    To determine whether the remote management feature is enabled for a device,
    administrators can open the web-based management interface and choose Basic
    Settings > Remote Management . If the Enable box is checked, remote
    management is enabled for the device.

    Determining the Small Business Router Firmware Release

    To determine the installed release of the Small Business Router Firmware,
    an administrator can log in to the web-based management interface and click
    the About link in the upper right corner. A pop-up window will appear
    containing information about the currently installed Small Business Router

    Products Confirmed Not Vulnerable

    Only products listed in the Vulnerable Products section of this advisory
    are known to be affected by this vulnerability.


  o There are no workarounds that address this vulnerability.

Fixed Software

  o Cisco has released free software updates that address the vulnerability
    described in this advisory. Customers may only install and expect support
    for software versions and feature sets for which they have purchased a
    license. By installing, downloading, accessing, or otherwise using such
    software upgrades, customers agree to follow the terms of the Cisco
    software license:

    Additionally, customers may only download software for which they have a
    valid license, procured from Cisco directly, or through a Cisco authorized
    reseller or partner. In most cases this will be a maintenance upgrade to
    software that was previously purchased. Free security software updates do
    not entitle customers to a new software license, additional software
    feature sets, or major revision upgrades.

    When considering software upgrades, customers are advised to regularly
    consult the advisories for Cisco products, which are available from the
    Cisco Security Advisories and Alerts page , to determine exposure and a
    complete upgrade solution.

    In all cases, customers should ensure that the devices to be upgraded
    contain sufficient memory and confirm that current hardware and software
    configurations will continue to be supported properly by the new release.
    If the information is not clear, customers are advised to contact the Cisco
    Technical Assistance Center (TAC) or their contracted maintenance

    Customers Without Service Contracts

    Customers who purchase directly from Cisco but do not hold a Cisco service
    contract and customers who make purchases through third-party vendors but
    are unsuccessful in obtaining fixed software through their point of sale
    should obtain upgrades by contacting the Cisco TAC:

    Customers should have the product serial number available and be prepared
    to provide the URL of this advisory as evidence of entitlement to a free
