05 October, 2018
On October 4, 2018, it was disclosed that D-Link's Central WiFi Manager software (CWM-100), was found to contain multiple security vulnerabilities.
The D-Link Central WiFiManager software controller helps network administrators streamline their wireless access point (AP) management workflow. Central WiFi Manager is an innovative approach to the more traditional hardware-based multiple access point management system. It uses a centralised server to both remotely manage and monitor wireless APs on a network. Whether deployed on a local computer or hosted on a public cloud service, Central WiFi Manager can be easily integrated into existing networks in conjunction with supporting D-Link wireless APs, to help eliminate existing bottlenecks for wireless traffic.
These vulnerabilities were discovered and researched by Julian Muñoz from Core Security Consulting Services.
