Security researchers revealed the various vulnerabilities and flaws that the latest 4G routers have got leading to information leaks and command execution attacks. In the DEF CON hacking conference the researchers came across a lot of flaws in the “existing 4G modems and routers”. Per sources, a selection of all the products was made and then tested which resulted in detection of “critical remotely exploitable flaws”. The part that happens to be a real point of concern is that quite a large number of flaws were found in a very limited stock of devices. From consumer-grade routers and dongles to super expensive devices that are designed to be used on mass level all of them were tested with flaws. The vendors were immediately informed about the security defects and mostly they were fixed well before the Pen Test Partners report got published.
Netgear 4G Routers Security issues also existed in the case of 4G routers fabricated by TP-Link and Netgear with four of them being assigned CVEs. The Netgear Nighthawk M1 Mobile router got tracked as CVE-2019-14526 and a post-authentication command injection (CVE-2019-14527) which could lead to arbitrary code execution. The attacker could exploit the above vulnerabilities by tricking the users into visiting a maliciously designed page. Some insight into the SCRF protection bypass flaw of the Netgear routers and breaking the encrypted firmware was also given by the researchers. TP-LINK 4G Routers The mobile wireless routers by TP-Link were also found to be compromised and with their very own CVE issues.
