# Eaton Lighting Systems EG2 Web Control Authentication Bypass Vulnerabilities
#


### OVERVIEW

Independent researcher Maxim Rupp has identified vulnerabilities in Eaton Lighting Systems' EG2 Web Control application. Eaton Lighting Systems has produced a firmware patch to mitigate these vulnerabilities.

These vulnerabilities could be exploited remotely.



### AFFECTED PRODUCTS

Eaton Lighting Systems reports that the vulnerability affects the following versions:

EG2 Web Control V4.04P and prior.




### IMPACT

A remote attacker may be able to exploit these vulnerabilities to perform administrative operations allowing the EG2 connection to configure the system via the Internet rather than by connecting directly into the network.

Impact to individual organizations depends on many factors that are unique to each organization. ICS-CERT recommends that organizations evaluate the impact of these vulnerabilities based on their operational environment, architecture, and product implementation.





### BACKGROUND

Eaton Lighting Systems is a US-based company that maintains offices worldwide.

The affected products, EG2 Web Control, facilitate Internet and Wi-Fi LAN connection into the iLumin network. According to Eaton Lighting Systems, these products are used primarily in residential applications. Eaton Lighting Systems estimates these products are used worldwide.





### VULNERABILITY CHARACTERIZATION


# VULNERABILITY OVERVIEW

RELIANCE ON COOKIES WITHOUT VALIDATION AND INTEGRITY CHECKING

Attackers can easily modify cookies within the browser or by implementing the client-side code outside the browser.

CVE-2016-2272 has been assigned to this vulnerability. A CVSS v3 base score of 7.5 has been calculated; the CVSS vector string is (AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:H/A:N).


# VULNERABILITY OVERVIEW

CLEARTEXT STORAGE OF SENSITIVE INFORMATION

An unauthorized user can directly access configuration file to view credentials.

CVE-2016-0871 has been assigned to this vulnerability. A CVSS v3 base score of 7.5 has been calculated; the CVSS vector string is (AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:H/A:N).






### VULNERABILITY DETAILS


# EXPLOITABILITY

These vulnerabilities could be exploited remotely.


# EXISTENCE OF EXPLOIT

No known public exploits specifically target these vulnerabilities.


# DIFFICULTY

An attacker with a low skill would be able to exploit these vulnerabilities.




### MITIGATION

Eaton Lighting Systems has made the decision to remove this functionality from the device. The EG2 is a legacy product that is being moved to "end-of-life" later this year. A new hardware and OS platform is replacing this system. Eaton Lighting Systems has produced a firmware patch to mitigate these vulnerabilities.

Please contact Eaton Lighting Systems for advice on updating the firmware.
