Agilent E5810A LAN/GPIB Gateway – Multiple Vulnerabilities

The E5810A LAN/GPIB Gateway from Agilent has several vulnerabilities.

#1 Unauthenticated Telnet Access

According to the manual you can telnet to the device for backward compatibility to configure:

For backward compatibility with the E2050 LAN/GPIB Gateway, the Telnet Utility functionality is provided with the E5810. However, E5810 Web Access is the preferred method to configure the E5810.

Testing this:

df ~$ telnet

E5810 Non-UPnP parameters are UNCHANGED.
Telnet session will end.

Connection closed by foreign host.

#2 Default Password for Web Interface

From the manual:

The E5810 uses these default configuration values until you set any other configuration values.
Password E5810

#3 password.html Cleartext Password Disclosure

Regardless of what the password is the password.html page will send you the current one. It only uses JavaScript to obscure it so looking at the source reveals it:



#4 config_lan.html hostName Parameter Stored XSS (CVE-2013-78007)

Go to the configuration and change the hostname. It has local JavaScript to block special characters but use a proxy and send a regular XSS string:
