Watchguard SOHO Firewall HTTP Request Vulnerability

SOHO Firewall is an appliance firewall by Watchguard Technologies Inc. designed for Small Office/Home Office users.

It is possible for a remote intruder to gain inappropriate access to the system on which SOHO Firewall resides through specially formed HTTP requests. The web server component will grant access to known files when HTTP requests such as http://target/filename.ext are received. In addition, it is possible to perform administrative tasks such as rebooting SOHO firewall and resetting the administrative password without any authorization. For example, a remote attacker may reset the password by supplying a blank request for the /passcfg object. This will clear the administrative password and will yield access to administrative functions via HTTP.
