Coship Router Unauthenticated Admin Password Reset CVE-2019-6441


Nearly all the firmware versions of Coship routers are vulnerable for this attack. The vulnerability lies in the apply.cgi file of the firmware where it doesn’t check for the authentication headers.

So, by crafting a malicious POST request and sending it to the router, the attacker can change the Password of the admin user without requiring any admin credentials or admin interaction.
