    exploited by malicious HTML and/or Javascript to execute arbitrary
    code as the user viewing the malicious content.
  1. Intuit Help System Protocol File Retrieval: 
  • The vulnerability described in this document can be exploited by
    malicious HTML and Javascript to retrieve a file from a ZIP archive to
    which the user viewing the HTML has local or network file system
    access.  The attacker must know or guess the path and file name of the
    target ZIP archive and the target file it contains.  A further
    significant limitation is that files in subdirectories inside of ZIP
    archives have proven inaccessible, based on a sampling of Windows
    ZIPs, Microsoft Office 2007 documents, JARs, and APKs.

No vendor response at the time of public release. More information with be posted has it becomes available.


Advisory: Backdoor in TRENDnet IP cameras

**Trendnet Responds: Comment left below from Trendnet in response to the most recent vulnerability.

TRENDnet has posted the resolution to the security breach on their IP cameras: You can check information on affected TRENDnet IP cameras at: You can download critical firmware along with detailed update instructions for the affected TRENDnet IP cameras at blogger “someLuser” (yes that is his tag)has identified a security vulnerability in some TRENDnetIP cameras which permits inquisitive web users to access them without authentication. He discovered the vulnerability whilst exploring the firmware on his TV-IP110w camera using a tool called binwalk.

Lengthy lists of freely accessible video streams are already circulating on the web. Random sampling by most testers found that most of the cameras were indeed freely accessible, providing views of offices, living rooms and children’s bedrooms. For demonstration purposes, someLuser has put together a Python script which uses server search engine Shodan to find cameras. Navigating to a camera web server URL displays the video stream recorded by the camera – this occurs whether or not a password has been set.

TRENDnet has already responded by providing a firmware update promising “improved security”, which can be downloaded from its support page. Many other TRENDnet cameras also appear to be affected – according to someLuser, the firmware for the company’s TV-IP121W, TV-IP252P, TV-IP410WN, TV-IP410, TV-IP121WN and TV-IP110WN models has been updated. Anyone using one of these cameras should update the firmware without delay.
