  Application: Orinoco Residential Gateway and Compaq WL310
    Platforms: N/A
     Severity: The ability to display and modify configuration
information
      Vendors: Orinoco (http://www.orinocowireless.com) and
                Compaq (http://www.compaq.com)

CVE Candidate: CAN-2002-0812
    Reference: http://www.foundstone.com/advisories

Overview:

An information leakage vulnerability exists in Orinoco and Compaq OEM
access
points, disclosing the unique SNMP community string. As a result, an
attacker can query the community string and gain the ability to change
system configuration including Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) keys and
Domain Name Service (DNS) information.

Detailed Description:

The Compaq WL310 is an OEM Orinoco Residential Gateway access point.
Both the Compaq and Orinoco access points use a unique identification
number
found on the bottom of the access point for configuration through
their management client. This identification string is used as the
default SNMP read/write community string. The community strings appears
to be unchangable, unique, and not easily guessable. By sending a
specific packet to UDP port 192, the access point will return
information including the firmware version and the unique identification
value. The packet returned includes the value of system.sysName.0, which
in the case of the Compaq WL310 and Orinoco Residential Gateway,
includes
the unique identification value. The identification value can then be
used as the SNMP community string to view and modify the configuration.

The probe packet:
"\x01\x00\x00\x00\x70\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00"
"\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00"
"\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00"
"\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00"
"\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00"
"\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00"
"\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00"
"\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00"

Community name: 0392a0

Vendor Response:

Both vendors were notified of this issue on July 8th, 2002. According
to Orinoco, "The Residential Gateway line has been discontinued."

Foundstone would like to thank HP's SSRT for their cooperation with the
remediation of this vulnerability.

Solution:

Employ packet filtering on inbound requests to deny access to ports
192/udp and 161/udp on the access point.
