ANTlabs Patches Vulnerabilities in Gateway Products

Singapore-based network technology company ANTlabs has released patches to address a couple of vulnerabilities affecting several of its gateway products.

Singapore-based network technology company ANTlabs has released patches to address a couple of vulnerabilities affecting several of its gateway products.

One of the security issues is an SQL injection flaw (CVE-2015-2849) affecting the “ppli” URL parameter in the default login page, main.ant. The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to execute arbitrary queries on the backend datastore.

CERT/CC noted in an advisory published on Monday that the bug only affects HTTPS connections.

The second issue is a reflected cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in the “msg” URL parameter of the admin login page, index-login.ant. The bug (CVE-2015-2850) can be exploited by a remote attacker to obtain login credentials for the administrator panel.

However, as with all reflected XSS vulnerabilities, the attack only works if the attacker can convince the victim to click on a specially crafted link.

According to an advisory published by ANTlabs on Monday, the vulnerabilities, uncovered by researcher Devesh Logendran, affect the following gateway products: IG 3100 models 3100 and 3101; InnGate 3.00, 3.01, 3.02 and 3.10 of the E-Series; InnGate 3.01 and 3.10 of the G-Series; SSG 4; and SG 4.

Firmware updates have been made available by ANTlabs to address the security holes.

ANTlabs’ gateway products are designed for use in various sectors. InnGate 3 is an all-in-one service management platform designed for the hospitality sector, IG 3100 is a full-featured gateway ideal for smaller properties such as hostels and healthcare facilities, SG4 is designed for large venue networks such as the ones in MICE centers and shopping malls, and SSG 4 is a carrier-grade solution ideal for ISPs, telcos, and municipal and metropolitan authorities looking to deploy city-wide wireless access.

In March, ANTlabs released patches to address a serious security hole affecting InnGate and IG 3100 gateway products. The vulnerability, uncovered by researchers at security firm Cylance, can be exploited to gain full file system access on vulnerable devices.

Cylance identified a total of 277 vulnerable gateway devices deployed at hotels, convention centers and data centers across 29 countries. Researchers have pointed out that malicious actors can exploit such vulnerabilities to target the customers of affected organizations, and also the organizations themselves by gaining access to their property management systems.

Attacks targeting hotel guests are not unheard of. In November 2014, Kaspersky Lab detailed the activities of a threat actor dubbed “Darkhotel.” The attackers targeted business travelers in the Asia-Pacific region in a sophisticated cyber espionage campaign.
