Atmel SNMP Community String Vulnerability

Atmel is a chip design and manufacturing firm that provides various RF-based products to corporate consumers. Atmel manufactures firmware for various wireless access systems.

It is possible to gain SNMP access to some wireless access points that use the Atmel chipset and firmware. These systems do not use sufficient access control, and allow reading/writing of MIB data with any community password.

This makes it possible for a remote user to gain access to sensitive information, and potentially launch an information gathering attack.
