Grandstream GXP VOIP Phones Default Credentials

October 30, 2013

Ran across a saved Shodan search for Grandstream GXP VOIP phones and a note about the defaults. They just use a password for authentication not account name and ‘admin’ works for administrator while ‘123’ works for user level. Many people seem to forget to change the default user account! The note says it works for “high-end and low-end: 1405, 1200, 2100, 280, etc.” I quickly tested these models:
GXP280 (HW0.3B)
GXP1200 (HW0.2B)
GXP2000 (HW1.1A)
GXP2000 (HW1.2B)
GXP2000 (HW2.2A)
GXP2010 (HW0.2C)

The login screen with just a password prompt:


User level access gives you the status and basic settings page but that allows you to reboot the device as well:

Sunday Shodan Defaults

October 27, 2013

Just a few more defaults while poking around Shodan!

The Technicolor TG582n has a default according to the manual:

The default password is either blank or the ACCESS KEY printed on the label of your Technicolor Gateway. This depends on the settings chosen by your Service Provider

The Adtran ATLAS 550 manual shows it has a default. (Shodan search)

After connecting to the unit and beginning a terminal session, a login screen appears. The default password for the ATLAS 550 is (all lowercase) password.

MayGion IP cameras (Shodan search) have a default admin account of admin:admin.

Vivotek network cameras (Shodan search) according to the manual have a default persistent administrator account name and no password protection by default:

By default, your Network Camera is not password-protected.
The administrator account name is “root”, which is permanent and can not be deleted.

According to the manual Siemens OpenStage 40 and OpenStage 60 phones (Shodan search) have a default password for the administration menu on the phone but it also works for the web interface: 123456

CSO article about default passwords!

October 23, 2013

A few days ago Steve Ragan contacted me after my blog about why ICS-CERT is wrong about default passwords. I thought it was going to be a short article just covering my comments but he ended up talking to a lot of other researchers about the issue and they all appear to agree with me! The article is titled “Changeable default passwords are not seen as vulnerabilities by ICS-CERT, but should they be?” and hopefully brings the issue of defaults to more people!

IQ3 Trend LAN Controller – Multiple Reflected XSS

October 23, 2013

Trend Control Systems makes a series of products called IQ3 controllers running IQ3 Excite software (Manual). From a Shodan search I saw I poked at one without authentication. By default you are given system guest access which lets you see the status of components. Some of these pages allow for cross site scripting (CVE-2013-78004).

1. K.htm ovrideStart Parameter Reflected XSS
