DIR-1260 :: Rev. Ax :: F/W v1.20B05 :: LAN-Side Unauthenticated Command Injection



On March 10, 2022,  3rd party security researcher from the Exodus Intelligence Vendor Disclosure Team reported the D-Link DIR-1260 hardware revision Ax with firmware version v1.20B05 as having an unauthenticated command injection vulnerability.  


As soon as D-Link was made aware of the reported security issues, we had promptly started our investigation and began developing security patches.


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.


Report information  


         - Discovered by  Exodus Intelligence:: disclosures _at_ exodusintel _dot_ com 


         The D-Link DIR-1260 router contains a command injection vulnerability in the SetDest/Dest/Target argument to the GetDeviceSettings form in the LAN-side web management interface resulting in execution of commands with root privilege. This form is used by the web management interface to provide information about the device before the user logs in and so does not require an authenticated session.
