   Application: Buffalo AirStation Web Management

       Devices: WHR-G54S Ver.1.20, possibly other Buffalo products
      Severity: Cross site request forgery in management interface
          Risk: Moderate
 Vendor Status: No response from vendor.


    During cursory inspection of WHR-G54S it was discovered that a cross
    site request forgery vulnerability exists in the management
    interface. Thus, it is possible for an attacker to perform any
    administrative action in the management interface. These include
    e.g. changing administrative password or adding new firewall rules.


    Buffalo AirStation WHR-G54S Ver.1.20 device management interface
    does not validate the origin of an HTTP request. If attacker is able
    to make user visit a hostile web page, a  device can be controlled
    by submitting suitable forms. It is possible to add new users for

    Successful attack requires that the attacker knows the management
    interface address for the target device. As authentication is done
    using HTTP Basic authentication, exploiting this vulnerability
    requires more effort compared to forms authentication.

Proof of Concept:

action=" "style="display:none">
Note: ropass value is reversed edit_ropass value.
action="" style="display:none"> = attacker's IP address Workaround: Do not browse untrusted websites while using the management interface. Log out after administering the device.
