iGuard Biometric Access Control - Multiple Vulnerabilities



URL: http://vulnerability-lab.com/get_content.php?id=104


Each iGuard Biometric / Smart Card Security Appliance has a built-in Web Server enables all the computers in the corporate
network to directly simultaneously access the device using any Internet Browser, such as Microsoft Internet Explorer Netscape
Navigator. Different computer platforms such as Apple Macintosh, Microsoft Windows Linux machines can access the device. No
additional software is required. So whether you are in an airport lounge or a hotel room, you can always check if your employees
are already in the office or not, and you can even control, modify or disable their access rights to your office remotely via
internet connection provided your iGuard Biometric / Smart Card Security Appliance is connected to an external IP address or
your network is available through a VPN connection that is reachable from your location.
