1. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
- CVSS v3 8.8
- ATTENTION: Exploitable remotely/low attack complexity
- Vendor: Korenix
- Equipment: Jetwave
- Vulnerabilities: Command Injection, Uncontrolled Resource Consumption
2. RISK EVALUATION
Successful exploitation of these vulnerabilities could allow an attacker to gain full access to the underlying operating system of the device or cause a denial-of-service condition.
3. TECHNICAL DETAILS

3.2 VULNERABILITY OVERVIEW
Korenix JetWave 4200 Series 1.3.0 and JetWave 3000 Series 1.6.0 are vulnerable to command injection. An attacker could modify the file_name parameter to execute commands as root.
Korenix Jetwave 4200 Series 1.3.0 and JetWave 3000 Series 1.6.0 are vulnerable to command injection via /goform/formSysCmd. An attacker could modify the sysCmd parameter to execute commands as root.
Korenix JetWave 4200 Series 1.3.0 and JetWave 3200 Series 1.6.0 are vulnerable to a possible denial-of-service condition via /goform/formDefault. When logged in, a user could issue a POST request so that the underlying binary exits. The web-service then becomes unavailable and cannot be accessed until a user reboots the device.

CISA recommends users take defensive measures to minimize the risk of exploitation of these vulnerabilities. Specifically, users should:
- Minimize network exposure for all control system devices and/or systems, and ensure they are not accessible from the Internet.
- Locate control system networks and remote devices behind firewalls and isolate them from business networks.
- When remote access is required, use secure methods, such as Virtual Private Networks (VPNs), recognizing VPNs may have vulnerabilities and should be updated to the most current version available. Also recognize VPN is only as secure as its connected devices.
CISA reminds organizations to perform proper impact analysis and risk assessment prior to deploying defensive measures.
CISA also provides a section for control systems security recommended practices on the ICS webpage at cisa.gov/ics. Several CISA products detailing cyber defense best practices are available for reading and download, including Improving Industrial Control Systems Cybersecurity with Defense-in-Depth Strategies.
Additional mitigation guidance and recommended practices are publicly available on the ICS webpage at cisa.gov/ics in the technical information paper, ICS-TIP-12-146-01B--Targeted Cyber Intrusion Detection and Mitigation Strategies.
Organizations observing suspected malicious activity should follow established internal procedures and report findings to CISA for tracking and correlation against other incidents.
No known public exploits specifically target these vulnerabilities.
