Support Announcements
Response to D-Link some legacy Routers (DWR-Series, DIR-640L, DIR-140L) afffected by sequenced Command Execution security vulnerabilities.

Overview:

 

On October 12, 2018, a 3rd-Party security researcher from Silesian University of Technology pubically disclosed three vulnerabilities that maybe used in combination to gain configuration access to some D-Link products.

 

D-Link is aware of the report alledged by the 3rd-party, and are in the process validating the claims stated in the report.

 

D-Link believes the 3rd-Party did misrepresent the vulnerabilities by broadly using the term "remote".  The attacks described in the 3rd-Party Report require the device to respond to HTTP requests.  These services are not available on the WAN-port (meaning Internet connection side) of D-Link Devices as default.  This means that the attacks described in the report are limited to the LAN-side (Local or In-home connections) which narrows the potential threat since the attack would need to start from a malicous user connected to the device on the LAN-side

 

D-Link will continue to investigate and release updated information as it becomes available..
