Asus RT-N10 Plus Cross Site Scripting CVE-2015-1437


ASUS Router RT-N10 Plus is vulnerable to cross-site scripting, caused by improper validation of user-supplied input by the result_of_get_changed_status.asp script. A remote authenticated attacker could exploit this vulnerability using the flag parameter in a specially-crafted URL to execute script in a victim’s Web browser within the security context of the hosting Web site, once the URL is clicked. An attacker could use this vulnerability to steal the victim’s cookie-based authentication credentials.

Technical details

Multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities in Asus RT-N10+ D1 router with firmware allow remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via the flag parameter to (1) result_of_get_changed_status.asp or (2) error_page.htm.
