DAP-1860 :: HW Rev. Ax :: FW v1.04b01 and below (older) :: Unauthenticated Command Bypass & Command Injection



On September 30, 2019, D-Link becamea aware of a 3rd Party security researcher that accused the DAP-1860 Hardware Rev. Ax of a command injection security flaw that may lead To unauthenticated remote code execution (RCE) security vulnerability.  The devices is deployed LAN-side or in-home and does not require internet services, this does reduce some risk since a malicious user or attack whould have to be with-in physical proximity and be able to connect to the DAP-1860 WiFi signal that has WIFi encryption on as default.


As D-Link investigated, and validated the report, and in coordination with the 3rd Party we have release the following Beta Hot-Fix. We recommend always to keep up-to-date firmware which can be found  at https://support.dlink.com/ProductInfo.aspx?m=DAP-1860

The Beta Hot-Fix has been throught the required cyber-security testing and software quality assurance for the specific issue.  This releases has not been through a complete cycle, nor will it be released as a fully qualified software release. 

D-Link takes the issues of network security and user privacy very seriously. We have a dedicated task force and product management team on call to address evolving security issues and implement appropriate security measures. Please check the D-Link website for updates regularly.
