DEIF Wind Power Technology makes the model AWC 500 wind turbine that allows remote access via telnet, SSH and HTTP. According to the manual (dated 2013-06-25) there are default accounts:


With these you can log into the web interface and access a few menu items:




Accessing via telnet works even if the root password has been changed. The system runs on BusyBox:

df:~ # telnet
Connected to
Escape character is ‘^]’.

deif-00-B0-49 login: root
Login incorrect
deif-00-B0-49 login: default
warning: cannot change to home directory
$ ls

You can also fingerprint the device via TCP port 44818 (EtherNetIP) which gives:

MODBUS Application Protocol 1.1b System Information Remote Disclosure

May 7, 2015

According to Wikipedia:

Modbus is a serial communications protocol originally published by Modicon (now Schneider Electric) in 1979 for use with its programmable logic controllers (PLCs). Simple and robust, it has since become a de facto standard communication protocol, and it is now a commonly available means of connecting industrial electronic devices.

This protocol is used by a lot of industrial control systems (ICS) and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems. Version 1.1b of the MODBUS Application Protocol, maintained by the Modbus Organization, outlines “Read Device Identification” functionality. This lets a remote client query a system for information and does not require authentication.

6.21 43 / 14 (0x2B / 0x0E) Read Device Identification

This function code allows reading the identification and additional information relative to the physical and functional description of a remote device, only.

Some systems may not give up much information but others give up the vendor, device, version, project information (which can include full path disclosure), and more. Shodan already uses this method to fingerprint systems:

Niagara AX Tridium Fox Protocol Remote Information Disclosure

April 29, 2015

The NiagaraAX platform supports the Tridium Fox tunneling protocol to communicate between two stations. By default the Fox tunneling protocol will be found on TCP port 1911 for NiagaraAX (version 3.3 and likely most others) which is the proxy server component. While using Shodan I saw that the port gives up system information without authenticating. When searching for information on how the protocol works I found that Digital Bond already wrote a NMAP NSE script to interface with the port and enumerate information! This saved a lot of time! This port will give up the protocol version, internal IP address (sometimes), Niagara-AX application name and version, Java client and version, OS, a host ID and VM UUID. Some systems can also give up time zone, brand ID, and other system information.

Carlo Gavazzi PowerSoft Multiple Default Accounts

December 23, 2014

Carlo Gavazzi PowerSoft is a SCADA system for energy management. According to the vendor page:

Carlo Gavazzi is an international group active in designing, manufacturing and marketing electronic equipment.

The Group’s products (sensors, monitoring relays, timers, energy management systems, solid state-relays, safety devices, fieldbus systems) provide automation solutions for the global markets of industrial and building automation.

The manual shows that it has several default accounts:

The installing program sets two default users on the system:
User 1:
Name: admin
Password: admin
Level: Administrator
User 2:
Name: user
Password: user
Level: User
These default users can access all the PowerSoft functions (according to the relevant level, see below) but, for safety reasons, it is suggested to create at least a new “Administrator” user (or more of them and the required simple “Users”= and then delete both the default users.
The “User” can access all the data, acknowledge the alarms, and ask for any report, also via web-server.
The “Administrator” can access all the “User’s functions and, in addition, can configure Powersoft and all the relevant modules
A user without the password can only access the real-time values and display the active alarms list.
