A WebHMI utility may be exploited by any logged in user allowing the execution of arbitrary OS commands on the server. This provides the opportunity for a command injection attack.

After login the source IP is used as the session identifier, so that users sharing the same source IP are able to gain full authenticated access to the WEB-UI.

The access attempt will only be successful if the former authorized session has not been terminated by the authorized user or by session timeout.

Multiple security issues and vulnerabilities within the WPA2 standard have been identified and publicized by Mr. Mathy Vanhoef of KU Leuven. These vulnerabilities may allow the reinstallation of a pairwise transient key, a group key, or an integrity key on either a wireless client or a wireless access point (AP). In consequence, an attacker could establish a man-in-the-middle position between AP and client facilitating packet decryption and injection.

A collection of Bluetooth attack vectors were discovered and related vulnerabilities known as "BlueBorne" were disclosed. These vulnerabilities collectively endanger amongst others Windows, Linux and mobile operating systems like Android or IOS. An unauthenticated attacker may take control of devices and perform commands or access sensitive data.

Pepperl+Fuchs analyzed WirelessHART-Gateways in respect of a critical vulnerability within the Firmware. An attacker may exploit this vulnerability to get access to files and access restricted directories that are stored on the device by manipulating file parameters that reference these. Incoming HTTP requests using fcgi-bin/wgsetcgi and a filename parameter allow a directory / path traversal. A publicly available exploit already exists for this vulnerability.
