NETGEAR is aware of the security issue #582384 that allows unauthenticated web pages to pass form input directly to the command-line interface. A remote attacker can potentially inject arbitrary commands which are then executed by the system.
NETGEAR has tested the following products and confirmed that they are vulnerable
All products followed by an asterisk (*) have beta firmware fixes available—see below.
NETGEAR is working on a production firmware version that fixes this command injection vulnerability and will release it as quickly as possible.
While we are working on the production version of the firmware, we are providing a beta version of this firmware release. This beta firmware has not been fully tested and might not work for all users. NETGEAR is offering this beta firmware release as a temporary solution, but NETGEAR strongly recommends that all users download the production version of the firmware release as soon as it is available.
Beta firmware is currently available for the models listed below, and beta firmware versions for the remaining models are being worked on and will be released as soon as possible, some as early as Tuesday, December 13th
